we went on the high passes in Oct / Nov last year. it was awesome, occasional cloud in the afternoon but always clear in the mornings (which was the better time for photos).
more practically, cloud will limit the flights in / out of lukkla which is the main reason for trying to avoid them!
I am really wondering what the weather will be like in Novemeber on the way up to Base Camp. I am thinking it will be between 60-70 F during the day and as cold as 30-40 F at night, does anyone know? I have not found much information on this. I just don't want to be cold!
DAYTIME - its warm enough for shorts & tshirts for the first couple of days, then something like a helly hansen baselayer and normal hiking trousers. its v cold before the sun rises, then warms up very quickly. have something in your daypack for when you stop for rests tho
NIGHTIME - a decent 3 or 4 season sleeping bag and you'll be fine - we were in tents too. get a decent woolly hat tho! cant think it got below say -10c
I`m booked go on the High Passes in Nov 2012, so I tracked the weather this Nov. at the two weather stations I could find.
Namche, around -3 to -6 deg C at night, 8 to 12 deg C day. Cloudless skies. Light winds.
Dingboche,around -6 to -10 deg C at night, 4 to 8deg C day. as above
