Heat Wave warning has been issued by the Met Office. It is predicted that for the next six days day temperature in Karachi will remain in between 40-43⁰C. Starting from Saturday the temperature will slowly increase in the City of Lights starting with a moderate heat wave and getting intense.
Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) sent the information to all concerned departments clearly stating that for the next 5 to 6 days temperature will rise in Karachi.
As the Holy month of Ramadan has started, PMD has kept this in view and requested all the concerned departments to ensure that power & water supply is given to the public so that the situation does not intensify.
Furthermore, Met Office informed that the wind near Pakistani Coastline will get weak and humidity will increase due to the developing low-pressure area off Indian Coast in the Arabian Sea. Because of this temperature in Karachi will increase and cause moderate heatwave for 5 to 6 days.
