What’s the weather like in Egypt in September?
Sitting in North Africa across the Red Sea from the Middle East, the weather in Egypt’s mainly hot and dry. Temperatures are still soaring in September and you’ll get plenty of sun and no rain at the country’s most popular holiday destinations. Egypt’s mainly desert and to the south of Cairo, including the Red Sea Riviera, there’s virtually no rain all year round. The Mediterranean coast has the wettest weather with the rest of Egypt being protected from rain by the Atlas Mountains. In coastal spots such as Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada, you’ll get slightly cooler temperatures because of north westerly winds and sea breezes.
The average high in Sharm El Sheikh is 36ºC in September, which only drops to 24ºC at night meaning you won’t need to fill your suitcase with warm clothes. The sea temperature is 28ºC, while humidity’s high. There’s not usually any rain in September, and you can look forward to 12 hours of daylight with 11 hours of sunshine each day. With so much sun at a very high UV level, make sure you take lots of sun cream. The sun goes down just after 6pm at the start of June.
