The Egyptian Meteorological Authority (EMA) in a statement explained that the country is currently being affected by the Indian summer monsoon, which is typical every summer and makes the weather hotter and more humid.

Winds will be northwestern and moderate across most of Egypt, active on South Sinai and the Gulf of Suez, disrupting maritime navigation in the Red Sea.

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 on both seas.
