The report states that the cloud amount is expected to gradually increase at the beginning of next week and there is a chance of scattered rain in some places.
"Weather maps indicate that the country's atmosphere will be affected by a cold spell from the beginning of next week with a noticeable drop in temperature, coinciding with the beginning of the 'AlMerbania' season as a result of fresh to strong northwesterly winds over most areas from Sunday evening until the end of next week.
