Climate and Average Weather in Egypt
With the small exception of its strip of Mediterranean coastline, the whole of Egypt has an arid desert climate. Throughout Egypt, days are commonly warm or hot, and nights are cool. It has only two seasons: a mild winter from November to April and a hot summer from May to October.
During the period May-October, temperatures in almost the whole country rise to 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) during the day and (much) higher. This is clearly not the best travel period for a holiday in Egypt. In the summer months temperatures of 40° C (104° F) in the shade are no exception.
