    Red Sea weather January

    What’s the weather like in Red Sea in January?

    The UK and northern Europe will be cold and wet, but the Red Sea weather in January is very warm and sunny! Take a trip at this time and you’ll soak up the Mediterranean-like climate and relax along the beautiful beaches or by your hotel pool in resorts like Sharm El Sheikh and El Gouna. Perfect.

    Geographical influences

    The crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea are to the east of Egypt and this coastline has lots of fantastic resorts along its sandy shores. On the northern Sinai Peninsula there’s Sharm El Sheikh, or the legendary mainland spots of El Gouna, Hurghada and Makadi Bay. These locations all enjoy a refreshing sea breeze which inland cities like Cairo and Luxor don’t benefit from.

    Averages

    You’ll need plenty of sunblock, because the weather in Red Sea in January reaches an average daytime high temperature of 29°C. The usual temperature is around 23°C. At night time this may drop to a cool 12°C, so you’ll need a light jacket or sweater if you head out for the evening. The sun blazes for an average of nine hours a day from 11 hours of daylight. Rainfall is very low around the Red Sea in January, with an average of just one or two millimetres, and you’ll be very unlucky to see any wet weather. The humidity level is 59% so take water with you if you’re walking around in the afternoon sun. The sea temperature’s warm at 23°C on average.
