Egypt's dusty, windy weather (Reuters)
Egypt will see dusty weather throughout the week, with a gradual rise in temperatures starting Monday due to a hot air-mass from the Arabian Peninsula.
Meteorological experts forecast temperatures to rise gradually by 3-8 degree Celsius until the end of week.
The rise in temperatures will be accompanied with dust in most regions in the country, including Cairo and the Nile Delta.
Egypt will continue to be hit with dusty weather until Friday, when a noticeable drop in temperatures ranging from 4-6 degree Celsius is expected.
The changing weather comes days before the Islamic month of Ramadan, which will either begin on April 12 or April 13.
Dar Al-Iftaa will observe the crescent moon of the holy month in a ceremony next Sunday, with the event being in-person this year after last year’s event was cancelled over the coronavirus outbreak.
During Ramadan, the ninth month on the Islamic calendar, Muslims abstain from drinking and eating from dawn until dusk, a practice that constitutes one of the religion's five pillars.
