The head of the Egyptian Meteorological Authority Ahmed Abdel-Aal said on Monday that dusty winds and rains are expected across Egypt for the coming three days.

In a phone call with CBC extra news channel, Abdel-Aal said that starting Tuesday the chances of rainfall are higher in the northern coastal cities, Cairo, and in Upper Egypt.

He stressed that fog is expected early Tuesday and advised drivers to exercise caution on the roads. He also called on citizens to dress for winter weather.
