The Egyptian Meteorological Authority is expecting a nationwide heatwave until Friday, with Cairo, Lower Egypt and coastal zones to be particularly affected by the weather.

Upper Egypt is expected to have hot weather during daylight hours, with temperatures set to drop across the country at night.  

In a statement on Wednesday, the authority said that sandy winds will be active in, Cairo, Lower Egypt, South Sinai and on the North Coast. Wind speeds are projected to reach 20 knots and will blow to the northwest.

On Thursday, Cairo and northern Upper Egypt will experience warmer weather, with gentle weather expected along the northern and eastern coasts. Southern parts of Upper Egypt are expected to have very hot weather conditions. 

The authority gave out fog warnings for the early morning hours in most areas, while the weather will be sunny in Upper Egypt.

The statement added that unstable weather conditions are expected on Friday, with a high possibility of sandy winds occurring over Cairo and Lower Egypt, and rainfall on the coastal areas. 

The Ministry of Environment warned that sandy winds will negatively affect air quality, and advised senior citizens and those suffering from respiratory diseases to avoid open places during the day.
