July Weather

Here is our 7 day Cairo forecast:

Things to note:
There is very little fluctuation.
No preciptation predicted for any of the days with 14 hours of sunshine for all but one of them.

Usually there is a day or two in the week where the POP is 10% or even as high as 20%, but not in July.  We haven't had rain in months and the last time when it did rain, it was just a sprinkle.

All told, the above forecast is pretty good.  We are of the mind that anything under 40 is OK with us.  We know 40 is hot, but we also know that it can get much higher -- to really hot at this time of year so we are feeling pretty happy with under 40.

Speaking of no fluctuation, take a look at the 14 day forcast.  How is that for a flat line??  The evenings seem to be getting progressively warmer which isn't that great for sleeping.

It all depends on what you are doing and how you do it.  We still walk to work and get there in OK shape, but by the time we walk back from work we need a shower.   We generally have 3 showers a day these days -- morning, after work and before bed.  That's 2 less a day then what we took in Sudan in the summer.  

On Wednesday we are planning to go to the pyramids.  We hope to get an early start because there is absolutely NO shade there -- except what we have under our hats!
