Summer temperatures in Cairo are rasonably lower than the September/October temperatures Doha held their Word Athletics Championships in. It's not perfect, but it's somewhat doable.

Cairo will almost certainly not host 2036, but there's more urgent issues at play than climate.

According to Weather Atlas, the average Cairo temperatures in July and August:

 “In Cairo, the average high-temperature in August is almost the same as in July - a still tropical 34.2°C (93.6°F). In Cairo, the average low-temperature is 22.1°C (71.8°F).”

As Munichfan said, certainly doable.

Maybe "doable", but it would be just as oppressive, if not moreso, than Tokyo 2020ne was, which many outdoor athletes didn't relish. And as Munichfan also said, there's still more urgent issues at play here than the climate.

Istanbul makes much more sense than Cairo anyway, if the IOC was ever interested in that part of the world. So much more picturesque, cosmopolitan & mild, pleasant summers. And that's even before you start to take into account all of the geopolitical negatives that would accompany a Cairo bid. Sure, so would Istanbul, but there are more positives than negatives there in comparison.

IOC strictly dictates now July 15th-Aug. 31st, as the window of dates the Summer Olympics can be held. Until that changes (& that's assuming if it ever does again, perhaps when it becomes convenient for the IOC to break it's own rules), any bid proposing dates outside of that time-frame, is just SOL.
