Does it typically snow in the early weeks of Nov? If so, does it make it harder to get around and is it uncomfortable walking outside in the cold?
I had a look at weather underground on last years temperatures for Nov, and seems ok, many days above 53F. But when i look at the forecast for 2013, its looks really cold.
I'm also tossing the idea of visiting in September, but with the bad weather (with cyclones etc) in the recent years happening between end of Aug to end of Oct, I'm tempted to stay away from those months.
