The weather in Israel generally warm-hot, even in the winter we get temperatures alot higher than europe. i live near the dead sea so its pretty warm here all year, but in november to be up north on the height of the Galil I think you have to have something to put on you.

One coat I think is enough, no need to run to the store and buy sub zero equipment. You will be surprised about the weather, specially in the south.

November can be a little cold in Jerusalem if you plan to go through...

November can be a bit rainy. I would bring a lite jacket and some long T shirts just in case. Most chances that the days will be warm and sunny.

November 2010 was hot and dry. Lets see what October 2011 is to see if the awful weather of 2010 will be in 2011.

The evening weather can be cool and rain is possible, especialy in the North. But daytime, especially in Masada, can be quite warm, so tou will need summer clothing, including a good sun hat.

Given your luggage restrictions, I'd advise packing clothing than can be layered easily for easy addition/removal of layers for when the temperature changes. This is especially true if you are going to be out in the evenings.

Pack lightweight rain gear, a sweater or sweatshirt or microfleece jacket, and also shorts and t-shirts and a lightweight skirt. Comfortable walking sandals and comfortable closed shoes.

I think Shoshi said it best. No meteorologist would predict that far out--we shouldn't be either. This year was very warm-hot, next year may be cold and rainy. Check back in Oct 2011 and we will be able to see better what the trend appears to be.
