Temperatures to drop down across Egypt on Sunday, cold, rainy, dusty weather expected


Meteorologists predict temperatures to further drop down on Sunday across Egypt. Cold weather is expected on all parts during daylight hours, growing colder by night.

Temperatures predicted for the following cities are 14C in Alexandria, 15C in Cairo, 17C in Qena, 18C in Luxor, and 19C in Aswan.

Frost cover is expected on plants in central Sinai and northern Upper Egypt. Mist will hamper visibility across the country’s northern parts.

Low and medium-level clouds are expected in the northern parts of the country, accompanied by rainfall on northern coasts, Lower Egypt, and may extend to Cairo.

Winds are expected to be mostly southwesterly and moderate, active on the northern parts of the country up until northern Upper Egypt, blowing up sand and dust in some areas. This will lead to a decrease in horizontal visibility and increase the sense of cold weather. It will also disrupt maritime navigation to the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.

Waves in the Mediterranean Sea will be rough and range between 3 to 4 meters in height, with southwesterly surface winds, while waves in the Red Sea will be moderate to rough and range between 2 to 2.5 meters in height, with northwesterly surface winds.
