Climate in Egypt
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.
