CAIRO: Thursday will mark the beginning of a three-day heat wave across Egypt, said the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA.)
The wave will peak Friday; daytime temperatures will be high in the Delta and “very hot” in Upper Egypt with a decline in temperatures at night in most areas, said EMS spokesperson Wahed Seoudi.
The wave will be accompanied by sand-laden winds coming from the western desert, said Seoudi, adding that full sandstorms may be seen in some parts of the country.
Temperatures will drop by 10 degrees Celsius on Sunday with possible rains on eastern and northern parts of the country, he added.
Cairo will see temperatures of 34 degrees Celsius in the morning, with a low of 16 degrees Celsius at night.
