    Egypt weather January


    What’s the weather like in Egypt in January?

    Egypt is in North Africa across the Red Sea from the Middle East. The Sahara Desert dominates the country, which means it has warm weather all year round. Temperatures are quite a bit cooler in January compared to summer, especially at night time, so it’s the perfect time to book your Egypt holidays if you prefer to stay away from scorching heat. It hardly rains in most of the country, which includes the popular Red Sea Riviera. The Sinai Peninsula has almost no rain all year round because of the Atlas Mountains, and this is where you'll find Sharm El Sheikh. Hurghada’s just across the Red Sea to the west.


    The average high in popular Sharm El Sheikh is 22ºC in January, meaning it’s still lovely for relaxing on the beach so make sure you pack some sun cream. The temperature cools in the evenings, so bring some warmer clothes with you. The sea temperature is 23ºC, while humidity is low. There’s just a single millimetre of rain and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate but still wear sun cream. Sunset’s just after 5pm for much of January.
