Egypt’s Meteorology Authority said Monday it expects unstable weather conditions to hit the country on Tuesday evening and last until Thursday, their Facebook page read.

Heavy rain is expected in areas of the North Coast, especially in the governorates of Alexandria and Matrouh, while medium levels of rain will hit areas of the southern Delta, Cairo, as well as central and North Sinai, the statement read. 

A notable decrease in temperatures is also expected, as well as strong winds on Wednesday.

The unstable weather is also expected to affect marine navigation, causing disturbances in the Mediterranean and visibility on the roads.

The authority urged officials in the concerned governorates to take all required precautions to limit the consequences of the bad weather.

The statement also urged people to wear heavy clothing and to be careful driving on the roads and to avoid all marine-related activities.

Waves of unstable weather have hit Egypt over the past two months, leaving 15 dead in heavy floods in the Red Sea city of Ras Ghareb at the end of October.
