Spokesperson of Egypt's Meteorological services Ali Qutb stated on Friday that the weather will remain unstable in the country but is expected to get better by Sunday as there will be less wind and rain.

Strong wind has caused five ports in Suez to shut down. 

According to Qutb, starting Sunday rain will only continue at the North Eastern coast but the weather all over Egypt will remain cold. As for now, dusty winds will dominate, distorting vision, and temperature will drop. He added that more clouds are expected in the coming days blocking sunrays and causing the temperature to drop. Rain is also consequently expected in Northern Egypt and Sinai and a bit in Cairo.
