Some areas in Egypt are expected see rain on Monday, the country’s meteorological authority (EMA) said in a statement to the official news agency MENA on Sunday.

The head of the EMA Ahmed Abdel Aal said that there is a chance of light rainfall on the northern coasts and some Lower Egypt governorates.

Abdel Aal said the weather will be nice, adding that there will be a general improvement in the weather, as the temperatures and humidity percentages drop.

He described Monday’s weather as one that will be “unique and temporary” for August.

“It has never happened before in August that the weather becomes nicer before the month ends,” he said, elaborating that this came due to the change in global climate.

Cairo will see a high of 34 and a low of 26, while Mediterranean governorate Alexandria will see a high of 30 and a low of 26.

The Nile delta governorates, where rain is expected, will see a high of 33 and a low of 25.

The tourist cities of Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheikh will see a high of 35 and 26, and a low of 30 and 29, respectively.
