Highways and agricultural roads close to water bodies in Cairo and other northern areas will see dense fog during morning hours until Sunday 3 January, Egypt’s Meteorological Authority (EMA) said.
Dense fog is expected on roads going to or from Cairo, Lower Egypt, the northern coast, as well as the Suez Canal cities and northern and central Sinai.
Dense fog decreased visibility in different parts of the country on Tuesday, leading authorities to temporarily close some major roads to prevent accidents.
The Cairo-Alexandria Desert Road, Al-Mehwar road in Cairo, and the Suez Road were among those closed in the early morning.
Authorities also closed Kuraymat desert road, which links Greater Cairo with many of Upper Egypt's governorates, and a road linking Beni Suef and Assiut.
Some intermittent light showers are expected in the northwestern areas of the country on Wednesday.
