What we’re tracking on 26 April 2018

Bad news on which to close the week: After rain and flooding Tuesday night and yesterday, the national weather service is warning that we can expect “unstable weather” to continue today in Cairo,with torrential rain forecast for some areas of country. Look for a high temperature of 30°C in Cairo and for the mercury to rise a bit over the weekend. With reports overnight that city workers were still vacuuming up water on major roadways and removing fallen trees, odds are good the commute this morning will be, well…sub-optimal.

Good news on which to close the week: Tourist arrivals were up 30% in 1Q2018, according to Tourism Minister Rania Al-Mashat.
