These are the questions you want to be answered before booking a holiday to Egypt or anywhere. Most of us want to escape the winter and spend a holiday somewhere, where the weather is good. If you are a person like this, then Egypt should be your next holiday destination.
The weather in Egypt, especially in the Red Sea area, is always good or at least decent. Raining is very rare in Hurghada. If it does rain, it usually doesn’t last for long.
The climate in Egypt is a subtropical desert, which means mild winters and extremely hot summers. During the summer temperatures may easily rise over +40 Celsius degrees (104 F) and in the winter night temperature can barely reach 10 Celsius degrees (50 F).
Here in this post, you’ll find all the important information about Hurghada weather by months from average temperatures to packing information.

Even if you visit Egypt in the WINTER, when the weather is coldest, there will be very warm days to enjoy the Egyptian sun.
In the Red Sea area resort Hurghada, El Gouna, Sahl Hasheesh & Makadi Bay winters are warm and maximum average temperatures are over 20 Celsius degrees (68 Fahrenheit) even in the coldest months of the year.
The weather in Hurghada is coldest in December, January & February:
- DECEMBER max. 22 C (71.6 F) and min. 13 C (55. F)
- JANUARY max. 24 C (75.2 F) and min. 11 C (51.8 F)
- FEBRUARY max. 24 C (75.2 F) and min 12 (53.6 F)
If you travel to Hurghada during the winter months (December, January & February), be prepared for the cold nights and warm days. The coldest month of the year is JANUARY with 17 Celsius degrees (62.6 F) average temperature.
Especially evenings in the winter can be very chilly, mostly because of the wind. Also, sandstorms are also possible.
NEXT: WHAT TO PACK FOR HURGHADA?
Pack some warm clothes with you: a cardigan, jacket, hoodie, long pants, scarf, socks or whatever makes you feel warm and cosy.
But remember, you aren’t going to Alaska for a holiday (though it’s a common joke in the streets of Hurghada). Don’t fill your luggage with the winter clothes, because you’re going to need summer clothes as well.
Like said before, days are warm and suitable for sunbathing even in the winter. If it’s very cloudy and you stay in the shadows, you may feel cold, but if you stay under the sun, you’ll get tanned and red (if you don’t use lotion).
If you are travelling with small children, winter is the best time to travel Hurgada with kids. Days are warm, and the sun is not too hot yet. You don’t need to be afraid of the sun burnings all the time. It’s more relaxing for everyone.
If the pools in your hotel aren’t heated during the winter season, some courage may be needed before swimming. If the pool is too cold for you, there is always room in the sea.
Seawater is still quite warm in December 24.5 Celsius degrees (76.1 F). The temperature goes as down as 22 C (71.6 F) in February and stars to increase again in March 22.5 C (72.5 F).

HURGHADA WEATHER IN MARCH, APRIL & MAY-AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
After the winter the weather starts to get hotter in March, April and May.
March and April are one of the best months to visit Hurghada and Egypt. The weather is pleasant and not too hot yet.
March is not a very hot month. In March you still need to wear some warmer clothes in the evenings. Pack light sweater and pants in case it’s windy and chilly in the evenings.
Evenings in April may also be a little chilly, but probably you going to survive with just an extra scarf.
Temperatures in Hurghada get seriously hot in May. For some people, including me, the sun in May is getting too hot. I prefer to stay in the shadows from May until September.

In the SUMMER in Egypt is extremely hot. If you love the hot weather and enjoy the sun, you’ll get it in Egypt.
If you want to read a more detailed description about Hurghada summer weather, read this post:
Average maximum temperature in June, July & August in Hurghada are almost +40 Celsius degrees (104 F). Evenings are also very hot and minimum temperatures are over +25 Celsius degrees (77 F). That’s hot, right?
Even the Red Sea water isn’t refreshing in the summertime. The average seawater temperature is highest in August when the temperature reaches 29 Celsius degrees (84.2 F). Water temperature doesn’t drop below +20 Celsius degrees (68 F), even when it’s the coldest time of the year.
But no matter how warm the seawater is, still, the best thing to do in Hurghada in the summer is to lay down on the beach.
If you visit Hurghada in the summer, instead of warm clothes pack mosquito repellent. You’ll need it more. You can buy OFF-mosquito spray from Hurghada. And if the mosquitos get to your skin, there is an effective cream for mosquito bites available in the pharmacies. It doesn’t cost much.
Also, Aloe vera and other after-sun lotions are available in the pharmacies.
The hottest months of the year are June, July & August:
- JUNE max. 36 C (96.8 F) and min. 26 C (78.8 F)
- JULY max. 37 C (98.6 F) and min. 28 C (82.4 F)

HURGHADA WEATHER IN SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER & NOVEMBER-AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
After the sweaty and hot summer, AUTUMN is always more than welcome.
September is still hot month with an average maximum of 35 Celsius degrees (95 F). But luckily, October and November are cooler and also the best months to travel to Egypt.
High-season starts in October and lasts until April. If you can travel to Egypt at the beginning of October, do it. Then the temperatures are tolerable, and the big tourist groups haven’t landed yet.

Both October and November are also my personal favourite months in Egypt. The days are hot and the evenings are warm. Somedays you may even feel cold after the hot summer. It’s awesome. And there is no need for air-conditioning at nights, plus it’s nice to take a walk during the daytime, again.
For the evenings, it’s good to pack some warmer clothes, for example, a hoodie or cardigan. You may need them in the evenings especially in November.
- SEPTEMBER max. 35 C (95 F) and min. 25 C (77 F)
- OCTOBER max. 32 C (89.6 F) and min. 22 C (71.6 F)
- NOVEMBER max. 28 C (82.4 F) and min. 17 C (62.6 F)
