The weather will be moderate and humid at night over all parts of the country.

Increased humidity will exacerbate the heat by two to four degrees throughout the day.

Light rainfall at a 40 percent chance is expected on Upper Egypt, Red Sea Mountains, and the Halayeb and Shalateen triangle.

Active winds are predicted on Greater Cairo and the northwestern coasts.

Waves in the Mediterranean Sea will be moderate to rough, ranging between 1.5 and 2.5 meters in height with northwestern surface winds, while waves in the Red Sea will be moderate, ranging between 1.5 and 2.25 meters in height with northwestern surface winds.
