CAIRO – 7 November 2020: Head of the Agriculture Climate Center Mohammed Ali Fahim warned of a “deep depression” that could hit the farm north of Egypt as of Saturday.


The depression is accompanied by decline in temperature, strong rains and thunderstorm with wind speeds reaching more than 40 km/h and snowballs expected.


According to Fahim, Marsa Matrouh and Northern Coast will be much affected by the depression, which is expected to extend to areas in Delta and Cairo.


He ensured that this warning should meet rapid measures by concerned bodies to be ready to deal with such large amounts of rain water during the coming three days.


He advised citizens to stay away from sea coast due to expected high waves, and to go out only if necessary.


Citizens are also advised to not stand under old balconies, old houses or billboards as they are vulnerable to fall due to the speedy winds.


Also, those who are preparing to travel, they are advised to take the train rather than a car or a microbus.

According to the forecast, the temperature degrees will decrease significantly on Sunday night, and even during the early hours of the morning, which require thicker outfits if outside home.


For temperature degrees on Sunday:


Cairo will record highs of 25 °C and lows of 17 °C


Alexandria will record highs of 25°C and lows of 18°C


Matrouh will record highs of 21°C and lows of 17°C


Sohag will record highs of 26°C and lows of 16°C


Aswan will record highs of 28°C and lows of 18°C
