The climate of Aswan is typically Egyptian and can be described as two words: Hot and dry! Rainfall is non-existent and as a result the heat tends to be a dry heat. Humidity is very uncommon therefore allowing the heat to be that bit more bearable. No matter what time of the year, itâs certain a holiday in Aswan will provide hot weather and clear blue skies. Aswan is comparably different to many regions of Egypt as it experiences very little cold. Unlike the coastal regions that benefit from fresh sea breezes and mid Egypt that have the advantage of cool desert winds; Aswan remains hot and dehydrated all year round. The cityâs proximity to the Tropic of Cancer also contributes to the high temperatures and a dry weather.
Winters are gentle and pleasant; however, Aswan does not experience the extreme temperature changes as to that on the common desert. Aswan instead receives very mild days as where the midst of the desert resides in bone chilling winter days and nights. Winteris the peak tourist season in the city with the average temperature ranging from 23°C to 30°C and precipitation is almost zero. January is the townâs coldest time of the year however an enjoyable climate is still always present and the average temperature sits around 16°C. The weather throughout winter is extremely favourable for sightseeing and tourist activity. The days are warm and light clothing will provide best while the nights are cooler but never terribly cold. During nightfall temperatures will rarely ever fall below 17°C. The lowest temperature recorded in Aswan was in January 1955 when the climate dropped to 10.5 °C.
Summers in Aswan grow intolerably hot with the average temperature ranging from 32°C to 35°C. Given there are no beaches locally, the scorching days are best spent in doors. Tourists, however, claim spring and autumn are good seasons to visit Aswan as most of the tourist amenities offer off season discounts and the weather is rather pleasant compared to the summer months. Spring is an ideal time for a holiday when the sun is at its least powerful and continuing fine, dry weather. March and April escort in the dried out winds âKhamsinâ that blow inland from the Western Desert. It is not surprising for wind speeds to reach about 150 kilometres per hour. Aswan weather reflects on the rest of Egypt, as in it is dry and predominantly hot.
