Egyptian summer is hot and dry in most of the country and humid in the Delta and along the Mediterranean Coast. In recent years the humidity has spread to Cairo and the city swelters in August. Winters are mild with some rain, but usually there are bright, sunny days and cold nights.

There is a short spring and autumn and during the 5 days (khamasin) between the end of March and mid-May, dust storms can occur sporadically. During the summer time. Putting sun- hat is essential. Cheap and pure cotton Sun hats are made locally and available everywhere. travel clothing should be light and comfortable, 100% cotton clothing is the best. Robust shoes are a must. The climate of Egypt is characterized by a hot season from May to September and a cool season from November to March. Extreme temperatures during both seasons are moderated by the prevailing northern winds some times.

In the coastal region average annual temperatures range from a maximum of 36° C to a minimum of 14° C. Wide variations of temperature occur in the deserts. During the winter season desert temperatures often drop to 0° C (32° F). The most humid area is along the Mediterranean coast, where the average annual rainfall is about 200 mm (about 8 in). Precipitation decreases rapidly to the south; Cairo receives on average only about 29 mm (1.1 in) of rain a year, and in many desert locations it may rain only once in several years. winter weather is fairly cold than the most people anticipate. Even when it is warm outside in winter it can be surprisingly cold inside the massive stone temples. In winter showers fall everywhere between October and April, so bring a few items of light but warm clothing, so that to cope with the early mornings and the occasional and unseasonable winter cold snap .

bring one or two dressy outfits along for the evenings out and specially for parties and special occasions and just to get out of your tour outfit. If you are staying in hotel or a cruise know that luxury hotels and all the Nile Cruises have efficient but surprisingly pricey laundry services if you object to of being $2 to watch out a T-shirt bring some detergent along in a few yards of clothing line.
If you are going to the desert you will get dry very quickly, so make sure that you have enough stock of water with you.

Egyptian mineral water is available everywhere at less than 1$ a bottle.
