Mercury touched 41 degrees Celsius in Karachi on Sunday under the influence of the light and brief heat waves that have gripped Karachi for the past two days, the Pakistan Meteorological Department said, adding that temperatures would begin normal in the city starting today (Monday)).
“Temperature reached 41 degrees Celsius on Sunday while 40.3 degrees Celsius was recorded the previous day because the sea breeze remained cut off towards Karachi for two days. “The weather will start to improve in the city starting today (Monday),” said Sardar Sarfraz, chief of the PMD meteorological officer, when speaking with The News.
He stated that it was a light and brief heat wave that ended in two days, and added that temperatures would start dropping from Monday and Tuesday. He said they expect some clouds to cover the sky above the city with a maximum temperature of 32 degrees Celsius.
PMD officials stated that the weather will remain pleasant and bearable in the city until the end of April. He added that the full summer will begin in the last days of April and early May when people in Karachi will observe the holy month of Ramazan.
