Weather in Egypt in May
The weather in Egypt in May is warm and sunny in the day with the mid day sun best avoided. May can be hot, or still a bit cold at night depending on the timing of the seasons change. But as a norm, May is one of the best months to visit Egypt and in particular Siwa, as it is not too hot during the day yet allowing you to still freely move around during the afternoons, yet warm in the evenings and not requiring a fleece after the sun has gone down. The evenings are still cool and a pleasant change from the day.
If you don’t want cold evenings when you sleep out in the desert or go swimming in the roman springs at night, May is one of the best months to visit Siwa on one of our all inclusive holidays.
Below are the temperatures for Siwa, Alexandria and Cairo and Marsa Matruh.

Weather in Alexandria in May
See our six day, live weather forecast for Alexandria on the ‘Weather in Egypt’ page
Alexandria Alexandria is the place to be when the weather starts to get warm in Egypt as it is next to the sea and has that northern wind to keep it cool, but it does get crowded and as the humidity is high can feel hotter than Siwa. Alexandria is one of the coolest beach resorts… in the middle east, so it tends to attract a lot of holiday makers from other parts of the middle east who don’t want to go to Spain. Swimming in Alexandria on the public beaches is strictly clothes on, even when you dive into the sea, jeans and all. It’s kind of weird be going fully clothed and walking down to the beach and just keep walking until your up to your neck in it. We did it once with a friends family, the holiday was great, but the swimming, well that part of the reason why we have bought an acre of land in Marsa Martuh for our weekend breaks from Siwa to go swimming in the Mediterranean.
Average temperature during the day in May in Alexandria is 27 degrees and a low of 17 degrees at night.
Weather in Cairo in May
See our six day, live weather forecast for Cairo on the ‘Weather in Egypt’ page
Cairo Climate in Cairo is similar to Siwa and very good in May but due to the humidity being higher can feel a lot warmer. Most days are not too hot and are pleasant with evenings being pretty perfect with no extra layers required and unlike in the winter, it never rains in Cairo in May. You can leave your hotel in the morning wearing a T shirt or light blouse and light trousers or skirt and not a lot else. In the heat of the day you will probably want to be somewhere out of the direct sun, but if your at the Pyramids in the morning one of our all inclusive tours show here you will be fine until lunchtime. Then its best to be out of the sun until at least 3.00pm, the good thing about it being so warm is you don’t need a jacket or fleece for the evening. You stay as you are for the whole day.
Average temperature during the day in May In Cairo is 32 degrees and a low of 17 degrees at night.
