Experts of the Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) forecast cold weather to prevail in most parts of Egypt over the hours to come.

It will be very cold at night across the country at night.

The middle part of the Sinai Peninsula and range of mountain of the Red Sea see mild weather over the hours of the daytime but it will be chilly weather at night.

Middle Egypt witnesses nice weather during the coming weather.

A thick mist hangs over the northern parts of the country in the early morning.

Greater Cairo, the Delta, the western and eastern costs receive light to moderate rain on Friday.

Winds get fresher on Upper Egypt and the range of mountains of the Red Sea.

The major temperature degree in Cairo will be 18 C meanwhile the minor will be 8 C.

The Mediterranean Sea witnesses moderate conditions and the waves swell to 1,5 -2 meters.

The Red Sea sees moderate to turbulent conditions and the waves swell to 2- 2,5 meters.

Because her boundaries extend from the Mediterranean Sea in the north to Sudan in the south, Egypt’s climate varies greatly.

Although some tourists venture into the searing heat of the Sahara desert, most confine their travels to the Red Sea coast and the Valley of the Nile.

Around Alexandria and the resorts that fringe the Mediterranean, summertime temperatures usually peak at around 31 Celsius (87F) but further south, in Aswan, temperatures average 41 Celsius (106F).

Although there can be a few wet days each month along the Mediterranean coast, much of Egypt experiences little or no rainfall.

So, with sunshine averaging eight to 10 hours each day in the winter and as much as 12 hours in the summer, tourists can base their choice of time to visit solely on the likely temperatures.

With summer temperatures exceeding 35 Celsius (95F), touring sites around Cairo can be very uncomfortable.

But it should also be pointed out that January and February can be quite chilly months in Cairo and along the northern half of Egypt’s Red Sea coast.

Dust-laden winds may affect almost any part of the country between late March and June. These can give some very unpleasant conditions at times.
