Egypt’s Meteorological Authority has announced that the country is expected to witness a wave of unstable weather conditions starting Friday, February 18, until Sunday, February 20.
It indicated that the state of instability in the weather conditions will be accompanied by rain in varying intensity and a decrease in temperatures with wind activity that will lead to interruptions in maritime navigation.
Earlier in January, Egypt witnessed similar and frequent waves of extreme cold weather.
The Meteorological Authority, the General Authority for Beach Protection, the Engineering Division in the Northern Military Region, and the two sewage companies in the two governorates said last month they were ready to face climate-change-related dangers.
This was during a meeting of the Local Administration Committee in the House of Representatives, headed by Eng. Ahmed El-Sigini, last month to discuss the government’s plan and the measures regarding climate changes (heavy rains – high sea waves) and the extent of its impact on the coastal governorates, especially Alexandria and Damietta.
Director of the Forecasting Unit at the Egyptian General Authority of Meteorology Mahmoud Shaheen stated that Egypt is affected by airmasses resulted from storms that took place during the past days, denying that Egypt is witnessing any storms coming from abroad.
