Alexandria has a semi-arid climate (Köppen climate classification BSh)

Post by jancancook on Thu Mar 31, 2011 12:38 am

Alexandria has a semi-arid climate (Köppen climate classification BSh),[6] but the prevailing north wind, blowing across the Mediterranean, gives the city a different climate from the desert hinterland.[7] The city's climate shows Mediterranean (Csa) characteristics, namely mild, variably rainy winters and hot summers that, at times, can be very humid; January and February are the coolest months, with daily maximum temperatures typically ranging from 12 to 18 °C (54 to 64 °F) and minimum temperatures that could reach 5 °C (41 °F). Alexandria experiences violent storms, rain and sometimes hail during the cooler months. July and August are the hottest and most humid months of the year, with an average daily maximum temperature of 30 °C (86 °F).

The light was first illuminated on October 20, 1892. It stands 144 feet (44 m) above the waterline.[1] The first complete survey of the rock was done in 1882, and construction began in 1883, with the blasting of the rock into a stepped pyramid to form the core that anchored the caisson to the rock. Construction was erratic for several years due to lack of funds allotted by Congress. Work was finally completed in 1891, but the lighthouse awaited arrival of its lens from France until the following year. When the light finally became operational in 1892, the total construction expense came to $752,000- making it the most expensive lighthouse ever built in the US and more than double the initial estimate.
