The head of Egypt's Meteorological Authority Ahmed Abdel-Aal said that windy weather is expected to continue in Egypt on Thursday.

Abdel-Aal warned people with respiratory diseases to avoid direct exposure to the weather to avoid a shortage in breath.

Winds carrying sand and dust are expected in the northern half of the country, leading to low visibility and cold temperatures, Abdel-Aal said.

He also warned of turbulent maritime navigation in the Mediterranean.

The Meteorological Authority has said that “extremely cold” weather is expected along the country’s northern coast on Thursday.

The EMA said expected temperatures for Thursday are: 

Cairo: 17 at High, 11 at Low

Alexandria: 17 at High, 8 at Low 

North Sinai: 19 at High, 9 at Low

South Sinai: 22 at High, 14 at Low 

North Upper Egypt: 17 at High, 7 at Low
