How much rain does Egypt get annually?

    The country has a wide variety of areas in terms of humidity and rainfall. Where it hits the Mediterranean, the air is often humid and it rains an average of 100-200mm a year. This is a lot compared with most of the country, but still wont support many crops. Cairo, which sits in the northeast near the Nile, gets only about 29mm of rain a year. And Egypt also contains large swaths of desert, where it may only rain once every few years! Throughout the country (outside of the coast), the average is between 25-50 mm annually.

         As in many desert areas, some parts of Egypt receive little rain for a long time and then experience sudden downpours that result in flash floods.
