Current weather in sharm

Some confusion here! Web sites showing weather as sunny and warm while reports from people out there now are saying no sun, cloudy and cold and that the locals dont know what to do because of this and its ruining trade ?

All the weather forecast reports cant be wrong can they?

Hope someone is out there now and can put me at rest!

We go 29th dec for 11 nights

Thanks

The weather is back to normal, it was windy, colder & wetter than normal last week.

From the weather forecasts I have been looking at it is back to average..

Enjoy

It's currently 24 degrees. As previously advised Thursday and Friday last week were not good. The weekend it gradually warmed up and this week back to normal. Very warm in the sun today, we sought shade whilst eating lunch.

Hi, can anyone tell me what the weather and temperature generally tend to be in middle of January?

The sticky topic on the right talks about air temp and water temp, but I think what I need to know is is it going to be warm enough to swim in the sea and do I need to take anything warmer than t-shirts for the daytime?

mid jan we've always sunbathed but as the weather seems to be going crazy the world over i think i will take extra this time, just in case.

Asif,

The water temp at the moment is around 25c to 26c apparently warmer than average for the time of year. I would imagine in January it will be 23c to 25c..if I was swimming for any length of time I would want to be wearing a wetsuit! as the sea maybe warm enough for you, but the wind chill factor will make you cold when you come out..

It can be very windy in the winter months so you may need a light jacket in the day..if its not windy a t shirt should be fine :-)

Hello sorry for jumping into your conversation .... Ive just read your advice about maybe having to wear a jacket through the day. Is January not sunbathing weather? Regards

Hi,

It is normally sunbathing weather in the day. We've been in early Jan & at the end.

It depends on which part of Sharm you are staying as far as how windy it is, generally speaking. Nabq can be very breezy, day or night, as can Shark's Bay. Naama, Ras Um Sid & Hadaba are more sheltered. Sometimes the breeze is warm, sometimes it's not, in comparison to the temp when the air is still.

There can be some cloudy days in Jan & about 3 years ago, there was a terrific storm around 17th Jan.

If the weather is 'off', it doesn't last long, normally.

I'd say take a few long-sleeved tops, just in case, or light cardis / jumpers.

We've always returned with good tans.

The temps given in the Top Q & Tips thread are in the shade.

Days are short, with the sun going down at about 4-4.30pm & it's dark around 5.30pm.

Regards
