Eastern Med.

2 posts in this topic

The Met Office says the following regarding the Eastern Med:

High temperatures continue well into the autumn with 33 °C (92 °F) at Egypt in September falling to 26 °C (79 °F) by November. The 'Sirocco' again often affects the Greek islands at this time of year, holding average maxima at about 29 °C (85 °F), falling to 19 °C (66 °F) by November. Greece and the islands become progressively wetter through the season (15 to 17 days by November). At Eilat, average daily maxima are still as high as 28 °C (82 °F) by the end of November, but at least it has started raining!

By November, 7-8 hours of sunshine can be expected over Egypt and Israel, but only 4-5 over Greece and the islands.

December is the warmest winter month in the eastern Mediterranean, although Cairo does have a fairly constant temperature throughout the season (average daytime maximum temperature 20 °C/68 °F). This makes it ideal for sightseeing - not too hot! Southern Israel has temperatures 2 or 3 degrees higher, whilst the Greek mainland has corresponding values of 16 °C (61 °F). Four to five hours of sunshine can be expected at Cairo and Corfu, whilst Eilat enjoys about 7 hours on average. There are typically 28 dry days each month in Egypt, whilst the Greek islands and mainland have only 14 to 18.


Hope this helps :)
