CAIRO: Temperature may drop Saturday amid expectation of rainfalls on northern coastal cities, according to a statement from the Egyptian Metrological Authority (EMA).
Unstable weather with active dusty winds, is expected to cover most of the country, EMA chairperson Ahmed Abdel Aal told Youm7 Saturday, noting that the temperature is expected to decline by 7 to 8 decrees.
“Starting from Tuesday, the dusty winds and rains could be confined to the north east coastal cities of Arish, Port Said, Sinai, and Rafah,” Abdel-Aal said.
Heavy clouds could cover Mediterranean cities causing showers escorted with thunder and lightning, the statement added, noting that active wind will come from western parts.
Temperature recording 26 °C in Cairo during the day and 18°C at night, while it will reach 21 and 14 in Alexandria and 39 and 25 in Aswan, the statement continued.
The winds could cause lack of visibility on the highways, and cause unstable movement of sea waves, he continued.
The country has witnessed winds and sandstorm at the beginning of this week prompting to halt maritime movement at four Red Sea ports.
