There are chances of rainfall and thunder on the western coasts and the desert area of Matrouh and Salloum.

Meteorologists anticipate active winds on Monday to raise sand and dust in most parts of the country.

They also predict chances of moderate to heavy rainfall, with occasional thunder, in governorates including Salloum and Matrouh, while light rain will extend over parts of Alexandria in the evening.

Storm Daniel is currently affecting the Libyan coast with heavy rainfall, thunderstorms, high wind speeds, and wave heights exceeding four meters above sea level.
