High humidity will make conditions feel 2-3 degrees higher than actual numbers throughout the day, EMA added, noting that moderate weather is expected to prevail during nighttime.

Greater Cairo is expected to see highs of 34-35 degrees Celsius until Friday, with humidity to make it feel like 36-37 degrees, while the North Coast is predicted to see highs of 30 degrees and feels-like temperatures of 33 degrees.

South Sinai will see highs of 38-39 degrees EMA forecast. Additionally, northern Upper Egypt will experience highs of 37-38 degrees, while southern Upper Egypt will see highs of 42 degrees over the coming five days.

EMA also expected morning fog on agricultural roads, highways, and roads close to waters that lead to Greater Cairo, Lower Egypt, North Coast, and Suez Canal cities.

Active wind is expected in parts of Greater Cairo, eastern coasts, and South Sinai for intermittent periods, a matter expected to reduce humidity feelings at night, the EMA noted.

Since June, Egypt has seen rising temperatures and humidity due to the Indian seasonal thermal depression that is moving towards several Middle Eastern countries.

Egyptians are currently celebrating the four-day Eid El-Adha feast. The Egyptian cabinet announced a paid holiday for government workers from 9-14 July.
