Egypt’s meteorologists predict hot weather to prevail across Lower Egypt, Cairo, northern Upper Egypt, and very hot weather to dominate southern Upper Egypt on Tuesday during daylight hours.

Mild weather is expected along the northern coasts, and temperatures will grow milder by night throughout the country.

Maximum temperatures expected are 29C in Alexandria, 32C in Cairo, 36C in Qena, 37C in Luxor, and 38C in Aswan.

Mist will impact visibility in the morning in the country’s northern parts, with low- and medium-level clouds expected accompanied by rainfall on parts of the western coasts.

Winds will be northwestern and moderate. They will be active in the Gulf of Suez, disrupting maritime navigation there.

Waves in the Mediterranean Sea will be low to moderate, ranging between one and 1.5 meters, while waves in the Red Sea will be moderate and will range between 1.5 and two meters.

Northwestern surface winds are expected on both seas.
