Meteorologists predict moderately hot and humid weather on Sunday during the daytime on Cairo, Lower Egypt, and the northeastern coasts, with moderate weather on the northwestern coasts and very hot weather at Upper Egypt.

The weather will grow moderate across the country by nightfall.

Temperatures predicted for the following cities are: 31C in Alexandria, 35C in Cairo, 41C in Qena, 43C in Luxor, and 44C in Aswan.

Mists are expected during the morning hours on Cairo, Lower Egypt, and the northern coasts, while light rainfall is expected in different parts in southern Upper Egypt.

The Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) said that the country is currently being affected by the Indian summer monsoon, which is typical every summer and makes the country’s weather hotter and more humid.

Winds will be northwestern and moderate across most of Egypt, active on South Sinai, disrupting maritime navigation in the Gulf of Suez.

Waves in the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea will be moderate, ranging between 1.5 and two meters in height. Surface winds will be northwestern on both seas.
