North and central Sinai, as well as the mountains of the Red Sea in eastern Egypt, will witness heavy rain starting Sunday night, Egypt's Meteorological Authority spokesman said.

In a phone interview with CBC TV, Wahid Seoudi advised tourism companies who organise safari tours to be cautious in these areas.

The north of the country, especially Matrouh, Alexandria, and Beheira, will witness light to medium-level rain. Light rain will fall on Cairo and the Delta.

The death toll from heavy rains in Beheira reached 18 on 7 November, as many of the governorate's streets and houses were flooded. Alexandria also saw heavy rain, which caused the flooding of streets and buildings and the death of five people a week earlier.

Cairo will see a high of 26 degrees Celsius and a low of 15 degrees Celsius Sunday, MENA reported.

In Alexandria, 24 degrees will be the high, with a low of 20 degrees.

Temperatures will be moderate in the north of Upper Egypt. In the south of the country, the weather will be hot in the morning and cold at night.
