I think better lights are the only real solution, especially if the road lines are unclear. I've always had more difficulty driving at night and try to stick with well-lit roads or streets I'm familiar with.
There is not much you can do to support seeing lane markings. I would still visit an eye specialist (especially if you are getting old) because you can have nyctalopia (the inability to see the lane markings on low light is one warning sign) or photophobia, sensitivity to light (the rain causes strong light reflexes which does not allow the eye to see ...
Your Vancouver Island to Prince Rupert sounds like it will be by ferry, in which case having a pile jacket and/or windbreak shell (rain parka also works) will be good to have if you want to be out on deck to enjoy and photograph the sites. These same items (pile jacket, rain parka) will come in handy in the Rockies, as it will likely be crisp at night. And ...
Usually in the month of November, rainy season would be over; but it can be very unpredictable nowadays due to climate change. I'm from the Philippines but I haven't been to Palawan yet. You can check out this link to view a six-day forecast exclusively within the Palawan region.
Malaysia is hot and humid year-round but it has the lowest average rainfall from June to September. Like Malaysia, Singapore’s weather stays fairly constant throughout the year, with temperatures only ranging from 30-33°C. June to August is driest.
For starters October is not high season, it is shoulder season and not very busy. The north of Thailand (Lampang and beyond on your itinerary) will be nice for traveling. Rains have subsided, but may occasionally see light showers. The first part of your itinerary has a higher chance of rain, but still ok for traveling. Temperatures will be warm still ...
September and October are not exactly the "tourist season" in Thailand, but you can hm still have a great time in there. I'd be more hesitant to go to beach sides and diving in the southern area in September. The rain will be decreasing by October, so you'll have a better chance of a sunny beach in October. The temperature is not too cold or not too hot ...
You can use one of these solutions, or probably a combination of them if you are very concerned about your gear: backpack rain cover aloksak waterproof bags/pouches. They have them in different sizes, from big (welcoming a 15'' computer) too small (for your passport or smartphone). I used these when in Borneo during the mansoon, worked perfectly. SealLine ...
Some days will be quite hot in Paris in July, and if you're used to living with AC it will be an adjustment. I stayed in Paris for a month last July and had to get used to sleeping with a single light sheet, moving as little as possible, and waking up sweaty. Old buildings will likely have poor ventilation, to compound the matter.
During the extreme weather events of 535–536, snow fell in China in the summer, see here:
The National Weather Service is probably one of the best sources for this. They have lots of maps for both current conditions and forecast conditions. You can find their page for graphical forecast maps here: http://graphical.weather.gov/sectors/conus.php For example, here is what their graphical forecast looks like for temperatures at 5 PM EDT today: ...
