Egypt's Mysteries

in Egypt

This is Egypt by far the most populated Arab country across Africa.

Located in the desert, and separate in two through south to north with the longest river on the planet: the Nile. The weather in Egypt will be singular (especially with the existence of this river).

On the western part of the Nile can be found the Libyan Desert, very arid, relatively regular in addition , on the eastern side we are going to locate the desert of Arabia.
It is the Nile that will help to regulate the extremes temperature of that large desert wherever the majority of Egypt is covered up. Almost all of Egypt's population will likely be focused over the fertile banks from the Nile that is going to finish its course in a delta in excess of 200 km large in the north of Egypt right into the Mediterranean Water.

This Nile Delta will start to stretch by Cairo which is situated about 150 km coming from the Mediterranean Sea and represent one of the most fertile and wealthiest portions of all Egypt. We identified really clearly in the satellite pictures, that the Nile Delta release itself just like a huge channel of dark green contrasting with the pale yellow color of the desert.

All of the area on the Nile delta as well as the Mediterranean shoreline of Egypt is relatively a temperate condition because of the ocean going impact.

You won't have to take your umbrella in Egypt, because we are in a place of Saharan desert local climate kind. It'll simply have two seasons: a mild winter by November to April where one can get the few yearly precipitation. On May to October begins a warm and arid time period.

During the month of April you will see frequent periods of sirocco, this hot, dry wind coming from the southeast, and that heat range can easily rise over 10 C in just a couple of hours. The atmosphere is going to take an orange tone, and you will find out sand all around you.

This sirocco may reach speeds over 140 km / h and may be accompanied by some violent thunderstorms. This climate trend will not last over 50 nights right before the hot arid summer months. If you have respiratory troubles, asthma or small children stay away from that time of year.
