What’s the weather like in Egypt in February?
Lying across the Red Sea from the Middle East, Egypt is situated in North Africa. The Sahara Desert brings the country warm weather all year round. You’ll have cooler temperatures in February than in the summer, so it’s a perfect time to visit if you’d rather avoid the scorching heat. There’s hardly any rain in most of Egypt through the year, which includes the popular Red Sea Riviera. The Atlas Mountains shelter the Sinai Peninsula, where you’ll find Sharm El Sheikh. Hurghada is across the Red Sea to the west.
Sharm El Sheikh has an average high of 23ºC in February, which is ideal for relaxing on the beach or by the pool. Evenings can get a bit chilly though so bring some warmer clothes with you. The sea temperature is 22ºC, while humidity’s low. There’s just 2mm of rain over a single day, and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be high so don’t forget your sun cream. The sun goes down around 5.30pm.
