A change of weather in Karachi is always embraced with open arms. Any windy, cloudy, rainy or foggy weather in the biggest city of Pakistan is quite welcoming.
So today the Karachiites woke up to an amazing dense fog engulfing the whole city. It was quite a pleasant surprise for all.
The fog is quite intense in the city and as the reports go the flights have been delayed, canceled and diverted because of the fog. The visibility factor gets affected due to foggy weather, thus the flights have been canceled or delayed today.
The weather forecast for Karachi is 30°C. The weather is partly cloudy with foggy atmosphere. The visibility is low of 160m and 50% humidity is forecasted.
As the fog has engulfed the City of Lights, people have taken out their phones and camera to capture the rare moment.

Let’s see what the people are saying.

It is pertinent to mention here that this is not the first time weather has surprised Karachiites in this winter season.
Just a couple of months ago hailstorm was witnessed in Karachi after four years. DHA, Clifton, I. I. Chundrigar Road, Shara-e-Faisal, and Malir saw the first winter rain along with hailstorm in the mid of December. Windy weather and downpours were also seen in Kharadar, Saddar, North Nazimabad and neighboring areas.
