What’s the weather like in Red Sea in September?
September’s a great time to visit Egypt’s top coastal resorts like Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada and Makadi Bay. The Red Sea weather in September is always hot, sunny and dry and visitors love the climate with the peak summer crowds starting to disappear.
The stunning resorts of El Gouna, Hurghada and Makadi Bay are along the east coast of Egypt, with the calm waters of the Red Sea lapping at their sandy beaches. Sharm El Sheikh is towards the north on the Sinai Peninsula, by the Gulf of Aqaba, and enjoys very slightly higher temperatures. These hotspots all benefit from a refreshing sea breeze, which helps to keep temperatures slightly lower in the summer heat.
The weather in Red Sea in September compares very well to northern Europe at this time. Visitors can expect an average daytime high temperature of 38°C. This only drops to around 26°C on cooler days in September. Get your sunglasses ready, because the sun shines for an average of ten hours each day. The days are long as well as hot, with the sun rising at 5.30am and not fading until 6pm this month. You’ll hardly see a drop of rain during your holiday to the Red Sea in September, with just 1mm falling on average. The sea temperature will be around 27°C so you’ll have lots of chances to dip in the water or even try activities like jet skiing and snorkelling. Take care when you’re exploring your resort and the beaches, because the UV levels will be high in September. The humidity should be about 56% and the wind speed a moderate 11mph.
