The trend can be seen on the graph. It shows the change in average sea surface temperature over the past two months.

For the two most popular locations for swimming in Egypt, the graphs of changes in the average water temperature throughout the year are as follows:

We process, analyze and store data for every beach and city in Egypt. Below is a table with current weather data and trends in some places of the country.

Egypt is in Africa. The country is washed by two seas, such as the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. Egypt - has a fairly long coastline. To determine the temperature of the water in it, we track 24 settlements and resorts.

Hot tropical (south and Red Sea) and subtropical (Mediterranean coast) continental. In summer (May-September) the air temperature is + 35-40ºС, in winter (December-February) + 20-25ºС. The coldest month is January. The whole territory of Egypt is characterized by large daily fluctuations in air temperature - in January-February during the day the thermometer can rise to + 29ºС, and at night it can drop to 0ºС and even lower (the latter is typical for desert regions). In Hurghada, the average January temperature in the daytime is around + 21°C, the night temperature can drop to + 11°C, in June + 35°C and + 24°C, respectively. In Sharm el-Sheikh in the wintertime around + 21ºС, at night –13ºС, in summer + 37ºС and + 26ºС. Cairo in January is cool by local standards - during the day about + 18ºС, at night + 9ºС, in the summer –34ºС and 20ºС respectively. At the same time, there is very little rainfall - not more than 200 mm per year, in most parts of the country there are periods of 2-3 years when there is no rain at all. In the winter and spring periods, dry hamsin hot winds often blow, the temperature during this period can increase to + 40-45°C, and the humidity drops to 10% or lower. Strong sandstorms periodically occur. The average water temperature in February is about + 25ºС in the Red Sea and about + 18ºС - in the Mediterranean. Moreover, in the coastal regions of the southeast in summer, water can warm up to very uncomfortable temperatures - up to + 34ºС and higher.

Egypt: oceans and seas

We monitor the following oceans and seas that wash the country. Just go to the page for a specific reservoir and see the temperature in all settlements on the coast.

Find out the temperature of sea water in more than 12000 cities and resorts around the world. Water surface temperature values are available in real time. There is a forecast of water temperature changes for the next few days, as well as historical data of sea surface temperature are available for all days of the last years.

We use data from various sources, including National Centers for Environmental Information (NOAA), meteorological services of different countries, data received from more than a thousand buoys around the world, satellite systems for scanning the surface of the oceans and seas.
