Sharm El Sheikh
What’s the weather like in Sharm El Sheikh in September?
Sitting at the tip of the Sinai Peninsula on Egypt’s Red Sea coast, Sharm El Sheikh has a hot desert climate and, thanks to North Africa’s Atlas Mountains, there’s virtually no rain all year round. Sharm El Sheikh has two distinct seasons; a long and hot summer from March to October and a slightly cooler winter from November to February. September’s one of the hottest months though the Red Sea does help to keep temperatures down a little on the coast.
The average high in Sharm El Sheikh is 36ºC in September, so you can be sure of getting lots of sun, and temperatures only fall to 24ºC at night. The sea temperature’s 28ºC, while humidity’s high. There’s not usually any rain in September, which has 12 hours of daylight and 11 hours of sunshine each day. With so much sun at a very high UV level, don’t forget to bring plenty of sun cream. The sun goes down just after 6pm at the start of the month.
