What’s the weather like in Egypt in June?
Egypt has hot and dry weather as it’s in North Africa across the Red Sea from the Middle East. In June, you can expect scorching temperatures and no rain. Egypt’s mostly desert, with areas south of Cairo hardly having any rain all year round. This includes the popular Red Sea Riviera. The Mediterranean coast has the wettest weather, with the Atlas Mountains protecting everywhere else. Things will be cooler and more comfortable for you at coastal spots such as Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada, compared to inland places like Cairo and Luxor. This is because of cooling breezes and north westerly winds.
The average high in popular Sharm El Sheikh is 37ºC in June, which only drops to 24ºC at night. You won’t need to bring many warm clothes with you. Don’t forget to pack your swimwear though as at 26ºC the sea’s lovely for swimming. There’s not usually any rain in June, while humidity’s high. You can look forward to 14 hours of daylight with 13 hours of sunshine each day. Wear sun cream as there’s a high UV level. The sun goes down just after 6.30pm.
