Egypt sees cold weather thunderstorms, snow and sand until Friday: EMA

The Egyptian Meteorological Authority said that according to the latest satellite images, unstable weather will hit Egypt from Wednesday until Friday.

“We are affected by a trough from the Mediterranean Sea, accompanied by a cold air in the upper layers of the atmosphere, which decreases the temperature and is accompanied by rainfall of varying intensity that is thunderous and accompanied by hail sometimes, and active winds that blow up sand and dust in some areas, which leads to a decrease in visibility horizontally,” the EMA explained.

Warm weather prevails during the day on Greater Cairo and southern Lower Egypt, and moderate weather at the northwestern coasts and northern Lower Egypt, warm on the northeastern coasts, central Sinai, South Sinai and the Red Sea mountain, and Upper Egypt, while very cold at night in all parts.
