Egypt's meteorological authority (EMA) said Monday's temperature will witness a drop accompanied by dusty winds, state news agency MENA reported

The statement said that the dusty wind could lead to low visibility and difficulties for maritime traffic on the Red Sea as well as the Mediterranean.

According to a statement by the spokesperson for Alexandria's seaport, Reda El-Ghandour, Alexandria and Dekheila ports were closed Monday morning due to weather conditions.
