Weather

 

 

 
General:
Sinai's weather is easy to summarize: it is very hot and dry. However, there are significant differences in temperature between day and night. Considering some mountains are over 2.000 meters high, the temperature might sometimes vary for more than 30°C.

Right travel time:
Because of the strong heat in summer time it may be recommmended to travel in spring or in autumn. March-April as well as September-October are probably the most pleasant times for traveling. Especially in spring time there is a clearer sky, more vegetation and and water will be found in the oasises. In winter (November-February) it does become colder, but sometimes it is still enough for swimming.


The summer is hot. However, for those who can cope with heat better than with cold, traveling to Sinai in summer time is still recommendable. This is especially true because there is hardly humidity to be expected. Besides, there are less tourists in that time, so that more individualism is secured.

Despite very warm and sunny weather throughout the whole year, in the desert it might become cold, especially in winter times. In higher areas it might even snow (e.g. St. Catherine), but only in the months of December to February. Considering this, people that are visiting colder areas should bring warm clothes as well.
