Temperatures in Cairo and the Nile Delta governorates are forecast to fall by around 8-10 degrees Celsius on Friday and Saturday, for highs of 25 and 23 degrees respectively, the Egyptian Meteorological Authority said on its website.

Weather in the cities along the Mediterranean coast, including Alexandria and Marsa Matrouh, will also see much colder weather, with the mercury falling some eight degrees to hit highs of 21-22 degrees and lows of 12-15 degrees.
