The remaining southern regions of the country will experience extremely hot daytime weather in the same period, the authority added.

The summer season officially begins on 21 June with temperatures averaging in the mid-30s degrees Celsius. Additionally, heat can begin to rise in the weeks leading to summer thereby causing elevated temperatures in late spring.

Subsequently, dusty weather is liable to ensue on Sunday in the Western Desert and the New Valley governorate, and in the northern region of the Red Sea governorate and Sinai on Monday, hence affecting visibility, the EMA forecasted.

Light rain with chances of thunder is also expected on Sunday in areas of the Northwestern Coast.

South Sinai is also anticipated to experience light rain Monday through Friday while the southern Red Sea Mountains, as well as southern Upper Egypt, will most likely see light rain Tuesday through Friday.
