The Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) has issued a fog warning from midnight on Sunday to Tuesday, with reduced visibility expected in various locations nationwide.

The head of the EMA, Ahmed Abdel Aal, said that fog is set to hit the northern coast, Nile Delta cities, Cairo, Central Sinai, and northern Upper Egypt.

Abdel Aal called on the ambulance and traffic police authorities to take the necessary measures to avoid accidents on highways during the foggy weather.

Despite the foggy conditions, the EMA said Egypt's weather will be stable over the coming days, marking the end of period of bad weather that hit various parts of Egypt in the past two weeks.

Last week, parts of the country experienced sandstorms accompanied by heavy rain, resulting in property damage and a number of deaths due to road accidents.
