CAIRO: Sand and dust-filled winds are expected to hit Egypt’s northern parts Sunday, announced the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) in a statement Saturday.

Meteorologists expect temperatures will increase in the upcoming days with slightly hot weather in the northern parts and hotter weather in middle and Upper Egypt.

Middle and low clouds are expected to cover the Mediterranean cities, while height of sea waves is to reach 2-2.25 meters, the statement continued.

In April every year, Egypt sees a dry, hot, sandy wind called khamaseen, usually blows ahead of Sham EL Nessim holiday, an Egyptian national holiday marking the beginning of spring and comes after the Christian Easter
