The climate of Luxor (Egypt)
Luxor is an important tourist town in the interior of Egypt, located along the banks of the river Nile. The reason why luxor is that important is because all sorts of attractions are in the vicinity. Such as the Luxor temple, the Karnak Temple, the Colossus of Memnon, the Ramesseum (the temple of Ramses II), the valley of the Kings, the valley of the Queens and Deir el-Medina. However, many tourists find the heat a big problem, especially during the summer months. This part of Egypt is one of the hottest places on our planet. With temperatures around and sometimes far above 40 degrees Celsius and an ever glaring sunshine Luxor is a very hot place. Because Luxor is located in the interior of Egypt there is a lack of a refreshing sea breeze, which can be enjoyed along the coastline.
The best time to visit Luxor is during the winter months. From November till March temperatures are between 22 and 30 degrees Celsius which is far more pleasant than the heat during the summer. However, during March there is the risk of a khamsin: a warm desert wind that often goes together with a lot of desert sand in the air. Normally these sirocco winds with winds often reaching speeds of over 100 kilometers per hour occur during April. However, during some seasons these winds occur sooner and can cause a lot of trouble in March
