Cold weather forecast for Monday, Cairo 17C


Meteorologists predict cold weather across Egypt on Monday on all parts of the country during daylight hours, growing colder by night.

Temperatures predicted for the following cities are 16C in Alexandria, 17C in Cairo and 18C in Qena, Luxor, and Aswan.

Frost cover is expected on plants in central Sinai and northern Upper Egypt. Low and medium-level clouds are expected in the northern parts of the country, accompanied by rainfall on northern coasts, and may reach Lower Egypt and Cairo.

Winds are expected to be mostly southwestern, active on northern parts of the country, blowing up sand and dust. This will lead to disrupted maritime navigation in the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

Waves in the Mediterranean Sea will be rough and range between 3 to 3.5 meters in height, with southwestern surface winds, while waves in the Red Sea will be mild to rough and range between 2 to 2.5 meters in height, with northwestern surface winds.
