Egypt’s Meteorological Authority (EMA) says the country will witness moderate temperatures during the upcoming Eid Al-Adha holiday, which will take place from Tuesday till Thursday.

The weather will be moderate along the northern coast, accompanied by a slight mist during early morning hours, according to head of the EMA’s Central Weather Forecasting Centre Mahmoud Shahin. The mist will not affect driving conditions.

However, there will be a 70 to 80 percent increase in humidity nationwide.

Egyptians will celebrate Eid Al-Adha, which takes place after the conclusion of the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, by going out to parks and zoos or travelling to holiday destinations.
