CAIRO: Several governorates are witnessing a wave of unstable weather accompanied by a drop in temperature, with the official forecast warning of a sandstorm Sunday.
Cairo will record 23 degrees Celsius during the morning, and 16 at night, Youm7 reported.
Lower temperatures will be seen also in Alexandria, which records 20 during the day, and 15 at night. While Luxor and Aswan, in Upper Egypt, maintain higher temperature reaching 34 and 36, respectively.
Ahmed Abdel Aal, the head of Egypt’s Meteorological Authority, said that temperature will continue to plummet by 7-8 degrees, along with rainfall expected to be seen in the northern parts of the country.
In statements to Youm7, Abdel Aal warned citizens with respiratory allergies against going out during the wave.
He noted that the wave will be limited starting from Monday in the northern coasts, including Arish, Port Said, Sinai and Rafah.
On Saturday, inclement weather resulted in farm fires, power outages in many villages, collapses of at least eight transmission towers and some buildings, and internet cut in El-Wadi el-Gadid governorate, southwestern part of Egypt.
Ali Mohamed, 29, reportedly died in a car accident due to the heavy storm that reduced visibility on highways in the governorate.
