With Lake Mariut located on the south and the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the typical climate of Alexandria can be defined very desert like. Located on a rather narrow strip of land, Alexandria features fairly little seasonal variation with warm and often exceptionally hot, sunny climates by day and placid but cooler climates by night. Unlike most regions in the Mediterranean that have four distinct seasons but similar to many areas of Egypt, Alexandria's annual weather can be separated into two main phases, both of which experience warm to hot everyday climates. From November to April Alexandria undergoes a season similar to winter, where mild and pleasant temperatures are featured and rainfall is a little higher. Then from May to October the city experiences a long hot summer where rainfall is almost unheard of and night as well as daytime temperatures are noticeable hotter.

Winter (November to April)

During the cooler winter months, the typical weather in Alexandria lowers to average daytime temperatures of approximately 20°C to 22°C. Due to its coastal and arid region locality and similar to any other desert resort the average temperature drops by at least half after night fall, normally just below 10°C. The months between December to March become extremely popular with tourists as while the sunshine still remains strong and powerful, it never actually intolerable.

Summer (May to October)

As the months pass the summer weather becomes noticeably hotter and while the everyday climate of Alexandria is never actually as hot as cities further south such as Cairo and Sharm el Sheik high temperatures can still easily reach 30°C, occasionally even the low to mid thirties. The hot months also endure a fair amount of humidity; however the location on a coastline is always beneficial allowing the refreshing sea breezes to reduce daytime temperatures and moisture levels.

Precipitation

Africa is certainly the driest continent in the world and Egypt is among one of the driest countries, averaging a tiny 80mm of rainfall each year. Alexandria however does obtain much higher average precipitation levels than most other cities in Egypt and for that matter over all of Africa. With yearly rainfall levels of approximately 200mm, Alexandria proves to be a rather wet area of Egypt. In comparison to most other regions in the Mediterranean, this is still extremely dry and the landscape further more results in an aridness and desert-like scenery.
