Egypt's meteorologists are predicting a continued rise in temperatures across the country into next week, with the mercury set to rise above the seasonal average for several days.

Temperatures will go up by 6-10 degrees Celsius through to next Saturday, the head of the Egyptian Meteorological Authority, Ali Abdel Aal, said in a statement.

Since the weekend, the weather across Egypt has been warmer than usual for this time of year.

The capital Cairo and the Nile Delta governorates are expected to see highs of 29-32 C over the next four days.

Cities along the northeastern coast, including the Suez Canal cities and Sinai, are expected to see highs of up to 30 C.

Egypt's western coastline, including the port city of Marsa Matrouh, should see highs of 24-28 C.

The southern part of Upper Egypt, meanwhile – where the ancient cities of Luxor and Aswan are located – will see warmer weather, with highs of 31-35 degrees, while the northern part is predicted to see slightly lower highs of 30-33 C.
