The Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) reported an improvement in the atmosphere at noon on Monday, extending to the cities of the central delta and to Cairo and northern Upper Egypt by night.
In a statement the EMA said it anticipates the weather to improve across the country until Saturday.
Temperatures will drop in Cairo to 36C instead of 42C, falling to 21C at night accompanied by wind activities north of the country – providing a refreshing reprieve from recent searing heatwaves.
Cumulus clouds will continue to form south of the country on Monday, with scattered rain to fall in the far south of Egypt.
Monday’s weather forecast:
The EMA anticipates mists to form during the early hours of Monday morning until six am on agricultural and highway roads close to water bodies, and the Suez Canal cities.
The EMA called on motorists to exercise caution, drive slowly, and adhere to the prescribed speeds as the mists will hamper vision.
Meteorologists anticipate very hot, humid weather to prevail on Monday over Greater Cairo, Lower Egypt, South Sinai and south of the country, while hot and humid weather is expected on the northern coasts.
Satellites images showed intermittent wind activity in some areas of the northern coasts, northern Upper Egypt and South Sinai, stirring up sand and dust in areas of the far south of the country at intermittent periods.
Expected temperatures for Monday:
Northern coasts: 32C
Cairo and Lower Egypt: 36C
South Sinai, Northern Upper Egypt: 45C
Southern Upper Egypt: 46C
