November weather ...
 
Been debating taking a "long weekend" getaway to someplace
in EU; haven't really thought too much yet about precisely
where, other than it being mostly a city visit.

Thus said, any general weather trend -type of comments
of regions to avoid (or lean towards)? Don't want to
consider someplace where the typical seasonal pattern
is 10 hours of rain each day.

Short list examples under contemplation: London, Berlin,
Amsterdam, Prague; maybe Athens, Barcelona, Basil..

In November just about anywhere in Europe can be cold and rainy, but
I'd be inclined to put Athens and Barcelona at the top of the list.

In November your only safe EU bets would be Cyprus or Canaries.

FWIW, don't mind it being chilly; question is rain.

Unfortunately, the timing is going to be a little before the Christmas Markets
start, which is also why we're not too revv'ed up about finding something.

Well, if, like me, you don't like rain but don't mind snow, head for the
mountains 8-). There are several areas that fit that bill 8-)

In my area quantities of rain are higher in summer
but we might have more rain hours in autumn.

Unfortunately, the timing is going to be a little before the Christmas Markets
start,


The time before is quite untouristic
in Central and Western Europe.

Might be possible to book an short notice
when you won't have to rely on bare statistics.

You might want to consider Andalucia, see Costa del Sol:

He said he wanted cities, which ruled out my first thought, which was
Tenerife, but there are some cities worth visiting in Andalucía, though
not on the coast: Granada, Córdoba, Seville. Many years ago (about
1965) I stayed in Almería, which is both a city and on the coast. We
chose primarily because it was easy to reach from Madrid by train. My
recollection is that it was less interesting than Granada, Córdoba or
Seville. When we were in Granada about ten years ago we visited the
Alhambra -- as one does -- and went on a tour that started at 11 PM.
Even at that hour it was incredibly crowded. I asked if there was ever
a time when it wasn't crowded and was told that it was OK in December.

Well, Santa Cruz has a 230,000 population?

He wants cities. What about Kiruna?
