The Greater Cairo and northern Egypt areas, however, will still experience hot and humid weather in the daytime until Sunday, with highs ranging from 31 to 32 degrees Celsius. However, the felt-temperature will range between 34 and 35 degrees Celsius due to the humidity.

The EMA said that the average humidity levels in these areas will range between 40 and 45 percent in the daytime and 75 to 80 percent at night.

Moderate weather is forecast along the North Coast, with highs ranging between 29 and 30 degrees and the felt-temperature between 32 and 33 degrees.

Northern Upper Egypt will see highs of 33 to 34 degrees, and the felt-temperature will range from 35 to 36 degrees. Southern Upper Egypt will see highs of 36 to 38 degrees that will feel like 37 to 39.

Winds will be active in parts of the northwest coast and South Sinai, which may decrease the feeling of humidity.
