Alexandria When to Go

Alexandria sits about 135 miles northwest of Egypt's capital, Cairo, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. As such, it has a Mediterranean climate, with mild, rainy winters and hot, sometimes humid, summers.

Temperatures in the thick of the summer are generally pretty steamy, with averages in August swaying between 79 and 87 degrees. Breezes off the Mediterranean keep it from getting as boiling as it does in central Egypt, but it's still pretty hot.

Alexandria gets a lot more pleasant in the fall. In October, average temperatures fluctuate between 64 and 82 degrees, and the weather is still relatively dry.

The city sees the majority of its rain between December and February, with most of it falling in January. That's also the coldest month of the year, with temperatures averaging between 48 and 65 degrees.
