Climate

The weather in Egypt is typically desertic. It means that days are warm or hot, and nights tend to be cool. Throughout the Red Sea Riviera humidity is almost non-existent, and constant breezes make the warm to hot temperatures more than bearable if not simply very pleasant during any period of the year. There are only two seasons: a mild winter from November to April and a hot summer from May to October. The only differences between the seasons are variations in daytime temperatures and changes in prevailing winds.

Along the Red Sea, temperatures range between an average minimum of 14° C in winter and an average maximum of 35° C in summer. Precipitation is almost non-existent: only in autumn and spring the odd rainfall that lasts no longer than fifteen minutes helps sustaining the rare desert flora and fauna. Some areas can experience years without rain, and suddenly receive downpours that result in flash floods.
