Weather

The climate of Egypt can be most adequately described as over 95% sun.
Egypt receives its water from the Nile and not from the sky, which remains brilliantly sunny for all but a few days in the year.
Even in the height of summer, the temperature never becomes too hot, as there is a persistent cooling northerly breeze.
In desert areas there are sharp contrasts between summer and winter as well as between day and night temperatures.
In the Nile Valley, temperatures remain most constant.
