CAIRO – 21 January 2024: The Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) has issued a weather report indicating the onset of unstable weather conditions across the western part of the country starting Monday, extending to the rest of the regions from Tuesday onwards.

This is a result of the country being affected by a low-pressure system over the Mediterranean Sea, which will bring a cold and moist air mass accompanied by an upper-level atmospheric depression.

As a consequence, varying intensities of rain are expected to fall over northern regions of the country. Additionally, temperatures will experience a decrease throughout the country, ranging from 5 to 4 degrees Celsius.

Windy conditions are also anticipated in certain areas, intensifying the perception of cold weather.

Here is a breakdown of the expected rainfall in different locations:

Moderate to heavy rainfall is forecasted tomorrow evening for areas along the northwest coastal regions and northern parts of the country.Light to moderate rainfall is expected in certain areas along the northeastern coastal regions.Monday evening, light rainfall is likely in southern coastal regions, canal cities, and intermittent showers may extend to parts of Greater Cairo.

Maritime navigation is expected to be disrupted due to rough seas with wave heights exceeding 3 meters.

These rainy conditions are expected to persist throughout Tuesday.
