Travel: Cold spells in Egypt
"While colder regions have enjoyed warmer winters this year, fueling fears of global warming, Egypt will be entering the first of many cold spells Fawzy Ghoneimy, Director-General of the Center for Analysis and Forecasting told The Daily Star Egypt.
December has been an unusually cold month and January will likely see temperatures dip closer towards freezing. The highest temperatures recorded this January so far have been 16° while the low has been hovering at 6°.
Ghoneimy said Egypt's temperatures are affected by air masses coming from central and Eastern Europe, as well as the distribution of pressure. . . . He expects a further three to four cold waves every month until the end of winter, Mar. 22."
