There is little to be said about Manilla's November weather. It was much drier than October, but no percentiles are at drought level now, as there were in September.

A very undistinguished spring at Manilla. One curiosity is that spring warming came all at once, in the third week. In a similar way, the autumn cooling had come in three steps.
