The weather in Cairo is moderate and low in humidity at almost any time of the year, except for some specific times in summer. Highs of 36o C are common in July and lows of 21o C have been witnessed; the winter months in Cairo, especially January, are much more pleasant with temperatures ranging between 21o C and 15o C.
