Egypt’s current spell of cool weather is expected to hold out into next week, forecasters say, with temperatures dropping to a low of 7 degrees Celsius in some parts of the country.

Rain is forecast in cities on the Mediterranean and some parts of the Nile Delta and Sinai on Saturday and Sunday, the Egyptian Meteorological Authority said on its official website.

The wet weather will continue on Monday on the Mediterranean coast.

Temperatures are forecast to remain cold over the next three days, with highs of 19 degrees and lows of 10 in Cairo and the Nile Delta governorates on Saturday.

Alexandria will be slightly colder, with highs of 17 degrees and lows of eight.

The northern part of Upper Egypt--which includes the governorates of Minya, Fayoum and Beni Suef--will be the coldest, with lows predicted to hit 7 degrees.

The cold weather will continue through Monday, with temperatures expected to be slightly lower in some areas including Cairo.
