Cairo's climate is a desert climate, which remains mostly dry and arid year round. Cairo is always warm or hot during the day, while the nights are cool. Its location on the Nile causes high humidity in the summer. December, January and February are the best times to visit Cairo because tourists can avoid the harsh heat and the chance of desert storms during these months.

Greetings from Brazil!
Wishing you were here (Not really),
Ron & Mary
The climate here is amazing compared to Cairo. It rarely ever gets cold and the summers are hot, not humid. We're staying around the end of January into February since its the hottest time of the year, unlike during July and August, when it's the coldest. (brr!) It rained A LOT the second day we got here, which is weird because they only get an
average of 3-6 cm of rainfall a month... We're still recovering from the 17 hour flight from Egypt. Oh, and the Sheraton Rio Hotel and Resort is AMAZING. We're expecting to stay in Brazil for a couple of weeks before moving on to our final destination, New Orleans. Just in time for MARDI GRAS!!!!
