Climate in Cairo


Climate in Cairo

The best time to visit Cairo is during the winter from November to March, when daytime highs generally stay below 25�C, with nighttime lows around 10�C with occasional rain showers clearing the air. (Don't bother packing an umbrella: even the rainiest months of the year rarely top 5 mm.) If visiting during winter, be aware that not all buildings, including some hotels and hostels, are equipped with heaters. Visitors should always pack a few warm jumpers and a warm jacket for evening wear. The brief spring from March to May can be pleasant, but summer temperatures, on the other hand, can reach a searing 38�C, which is compounded by the city's terrible pollution which is at its worst in the fall before the rains.
