Dusty winds may also be seen in northern Upper Egypt and the western coast on Tuesday and southern Egypt on Wednesday, reducing vision on desert roads and open areas, according to the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA).

The expected wind is the result of an air depression over the Mediterranean, the EMA said, adding that the wind speed is expected to decrease slightly at night.

There is also a chance of mild rainfall in parts of the far west of the country on Tuesday and in the southern Delta on Wednesday, the EMA said.

The northern coast and northern Delta may also see moderate rainfall on Tuesday.

The unstable weather will mostly be in the north of the country down to northern Upper Egypt.

According to the EMA, Greater Cairo and Lower Egypt will see highs ranging from 20 to 25 degrees Celsius from Tuesday to Sunday, with lows of 13 to 15 degrees.

The northern coast will see highs of 19-23 degrees and lows of 13-15.

South Sinai is expected to experience highs of 24-28 degrees and lows of 14-16.

Northern Upper Egypt will see highs ranging from 20 to 26 degrees and lows of 9 to 13, while southern Upper Egypt will see highs of 23-30 and lows of 12-13.
