Meteorologists predict hot and humid weather across Cairo and Lower Egypt on Friday, with moderate temperatures on the northern coasts, high temperatures in northern Upper Egypt and South Sinai, and very high temperatures in southern Upper Egypt.

Temperatures will grow mild across most of the country at night, and humidity will rise on the northern coasts.

Active winds are expected for the northwestern coast and South Sinai, disturbing the maritime navigation in the Gulf of Suez.

Temperatures predicted for the following cities are: 36C in Cairo, 31C in Alexandria, 40C in Qena, 41C in Luxor, and 41C in Aswan.

Mist is expected for Greater Cairo, Lower Egypt, and the northern coasts during the daylight.

Maximum humidity levels are: 85C in Cairo and Lower Egypt, 88C on the northern coasts, 65 in northern Upper Egypt, and 40 in southern Upper Egypt.

Waves in the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea will be moderate, ranging between 1.5 and two meters in height, with northwestern surface winds over both seas.

The Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) said that most parts of the country, excluding western areas, are currently being affected by the Indian summer monsoon, which makes the Egypt’s weather hotter and more humid.
