Amber Cove Weather in November

November weather is not kind to Amber Cove. It’s the high point of the rainy season for this cruise destination on the northern coast of Dominican Republic.

Amber Cove is a shopping, dining and entertainment facility built by Carnival near the resort city of Puerto Plata. It is a convenient stopping point for ships on eastern Caribbean cruises.

The weather in the area around Amber Cove and Puerto Plata is unusual for the Caribbean. It tends to have a dry season when the Caribbean gets a lot of rain and a rainy season when most of the Caribbean is dry.

November Rainfall

The rainy season begins in October and goes until May. In November, the area historically averages more than four inches of rain during the month, according to Dominican Republic’s National Office of Meteorology. It’s the second highest amount of the year after December, which has slightly more.

That level of rain is actually not so bad compared to the rainy seasons of other Caribbean islands. They usually get hit hardest in September.

By comparison, Amber Cove averages about two to three inches of rain from June through September.

During that same summer period, it rains about seven to eight days on average during the month. In November, the average jumps to 14 days.

November is one of the worst months to visit Amber Cove for the risk of rain.

November Temperatures

Temperatures during the month are usually warm during the day and a bit cool at night.

The average daytime temperature during the month is 86 degrees Fahrenheit or more than 30 Celsius. The average nighttime temperature is 55 Fahrenheit or 19 Celsius.

The cooler nighttime temperatures will bring water temperatures down to the point where they will feel chilly at times for swimmers.

Visitors will find much better temperatures from June through August. Daytime temperatures average 90 degrees Fahrenheit and nighttime temperatures average 70 Fahrenheit.
