Egypt can expect three days of sandstorms countrywide starting Friday, according to Egyptian Meteorological Authority President Mohamed Mahmoud Eissa.
“Low clouds are expected to cover the skies of the northern and eastern parts of the country, moving south to Cairo and Sohag,” Eissa predicted on Wednesday. “This may cause thunderstorms and torrential rain in and around the coastal cities and in the Sinai Peninsula.”
He went on to warn that visibility would likely be diminished significantly, affecting maritime navigation in particular.
Temperatures in coastal cities, meanwhile, are expected to range between 15 and 17 degrees Celsius; between 6 and18 degrees in the Nile Delta, Cairo and Middle Egypt; and between 20 and 21 degrees in Upper Egypt.
