Temperature to slide 10°C as cold snap begins this week
Bad weather hits Egypt

CAIRO: A warm weather witnessed across the country during the past days is expected to break by the end of the week, with the temperature to drop by 10 degrees, the chairman of Egypt’s Meteorological Authority (EMA) Ahmed Abdel Aal warned Wednesday.

The new weather will be felt starting from Friday night and will last until Tuesday, said Abdel Aal, warning against wearing light clothes during this period.

The plummet in temperature will be accompanied by moderate wind that amounts to a sand storm by Sunday, which will reduce visibility on highways. Experts also expected mild showers on the northern coast cities, Lower Egypt and Cairo.

Cairo has recorded its highest day temperature this week on Wednesday hitting 33°C, and will see 16 at night.

During the new wave, day temperature in the capital will vary between  21°C to 24°C, in North Sinai between 17 °C to 20°C, in northern Upper Egypt cities between 22°C to 24°C, in southern Upper Egypt cities between 25°C to 27°C, while in South Sinai will record between 24°C to 26°C.
