What Is The Average Of the Weather Temperature in Egypt?
Cairo seasonal Averages
Luxor & Aswan Seasonal Averages
A hot, dry country, the temperature of Egypt varies from North to South. Most tourists visit the country in its ‘high season’ – October to March. Summers are extremely hot, especially in Upper Egypt, where temperatures can easily reach up to 50 C (122 F) in June and July. The average midwinter temperature in Aswan is usually around 25 C (77 F) and 10 C (50 F) in Cairo. In the winter as soon as the sun has set it can feel very cold because of the contrast in temperature. Rainfall is quite rare in Upper Egypt, but you can expect a little rain in the winter months in Cairo and the Delta. A strong dry wind known as the Khamsin (literally ‘fifty’) blows in March or April for around 50 days from the Western desert, spreading fine particles of sand over everything it touches.
The best time to visit Egypt is October through May. Temperatures vary between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The nights will be cool but most days are still sunny. December through February aren’t the best times for swimming in the Mediterranean though, it gets quite cold and rainy. Watch out for dust storms from March until May. If you don’t mind swampy temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit and want to save a little money, visit Egypt in the summer.
