Egypt may see heavier rains and flooding this fall, the EMA warns

A member of the Egyptian Meteorological Authority’s media center Manar Ghanem revealed the weather forecast for fall this year, set to officially begin on Saturday, September 23 and bringing with it an increased risk of heavy rains and flooding.

In a Monday phone interview with the al-Oula state-TV channel, Ghanem explained that fall is a season of moderate temperatures, but is also transitional in nature, with the first half being closer to summer and still witnessing hotter weather.

As the second half of autumn nears winter, temperatures will begin to noticeably drop, she added.

Ghanem noted that fall is the season of rain, especially in the southern regions, and warned that there is a chance that this year might see higher than normal rates of rain.

The EMA issued a statement on its official page on Facebook outlining the climate during Egypt’s fall season this year.

It explained that the fall semester is expected to begin on Saturday, and continue for the next three months, ending on Wednesday, December 20.
