The Official Travel Notes Blog

Weather in Cairo While trawling through the Travel Notes link submissions; trying to get the number in our inbox down from over a thousand, before I go away for Christmas and the New Year, I came across one site I'd really like to share with you all - Weather 2 Travel.

At first I opened the link with trepidation, expecting popular holiday resorts with Accu Weather maps embedded into the page and a list of hotels for each city, or a list of links to places on Weather Channel or Weather Underground.

We already link to those sites (and others) in our Weather Directory, so I really wanted to see something different.

Rather than show the current weather, this site uses a nice graphic approach to presenting yearly averages for: Maximum Day Temperature; Minimum Night Temperature; Hours of Sunshine; Number of Days with some Rain; Monthly Rainfall; Heat & Humidity / Chance of Frost; and UV Index (Sun Protection) for just about anywhere in the world - not just the popular tourist resorts.

What really sold the site to me was the Holiday Planner feature where you can search for travel destinations based on the sort of weather you would like on your holiday.

Just choose the month you wish to travel and at least one weather requirement. My search threw up Cairo for January, so that's the screenshot we've used in this post.

Currently the search checks some 1,400 travel destinations, although they hope to increase this number soon.

Let's hope so!

This is kind of cool. If only I would have known about this before I travelled to Canada in November and found no snow at all :P

Now's the time to go looking for snow.... it's snowing almost everywhere.

Which means the annual ski article will be dusted down and repainted for this year's outlook.
