Luxor, Egypt starts to cool down in August, with an average temperature of 31°C, comprised of an average high of 39°C and low of 23°C, courtesy of 13 hours of sunshine per day. Rainfall remains the same as it has since April, at 10mm, but humidity increases to average 35%.
For those who can stand the heat, August is an enjoyable month to visit Luxor thanks in part to the Festival of Moulid of Abu el-Haggag. The festival occurs two weeks before Ramadan begins, usually the middle of the month, and takes place over two days. It's a street festival where the Moulid of Abu el-Haggag celebrates the patron sheikh of the city. The Nile region's flood season also begins in the middle of August, and that can be a real experience for anyone who has never seen it before.
