Egypt weather overview
The popularity of Egypt as a holiday destination stems not only from its ancient heritage but also from its climate. With vast tracts of the country lying actually inside the Sahara, it is one of the world's sunniest environments throughout the year. Cairo averages 11 hours of sunshine a day in the peak summer and 8 hours in the winter.
An exception to the sunny norm is Egypt's Mediterranean coast where the winters (November to March), although warm, can bring cloudy days and short periods of rain. More testing, on the coast and in the Nile Delta, are the spring months (March to May) when the Khamsin desert winds can blow strongly and send temperatures soaring making life unpleasant.
What to pack for Egypt weather
A combination of light and warm clothing is most appropriate. Very hot daytime temperatures plunge dramatically after sundown.
