Highest temperature since 1947: Karachi is sizzling at 43.6 ° C | Instant News

KARACHI: The Karachi people challenge the hottest day of Saturday when mercury rises to 43.6 degrees Celsius, close to April 1947’s record 74 of 44.4 C.

The Met Department said hissing weather conditions developed due to the influence of the dry continental air following western disturbances in Pakistan. According to Sardar Sarfraz, Sindh’s chief meteorological officer, the highest temperature ever recorded in Karachi in April was 44.4 ° C on April 14, 1947, and mercury never rose as high as 43.6 ° C in the city until Saturday. He blames the sea breezes’ suspension for Karachi’s hot weather.

Interestingly, Met officials also observed wide differences in weather in Pakistan on Saturday: on the one hand Karachi recorded the highest temperature in April since 1947, and on the other, a bit of cold weather gripped the country’s upper regions. They blame the dry continental air for the extreme divergence.

Sarfraz said that Karachi’s temperatures will start dropping from Sunday, when mercury will most likely stay between 37 ° C and 38 ° C, adding that temperatures will drop further to 35 ° C or 36 ° C on Monday. “But the weak western disturbance is in sight. This will affect the upper part of the country, but when it passes, it will bring more hot days for the south, including Karachi. “

Regarding the forecasted weather situation in the month of Ramadan, he said that Karachi temperatures usually remain hot in April and May, but nothing can predict the city’s weather with accuracy; under the influence of variable winds, the air may become extremely hot and humid or hot and dry.

The Meteorological Department of Pakistan (PMD) said Wednesday that the maximum temperature in Karachi was recorded at 41.5 ° C today. The temperature rose more than one degree compared to yesterday’s 40.2 ° C.

The meteorological department estimates the temperature of the port city will most likely remain between 39-41 ° C for the next three days, with the Sindh government directing all relevant authorities to take the necessary action to save lives from the heat wave.

A day earlier, the PMD had issued warnings about many parts of the country that were hit by the first heat wave of the season this week.

According to the PMD spokesperson, most of the hot and dry weather is expected during this week as heat wave conditions are likely to occur over large parts of the country’s plains.

Sindh, South Punjab and East and South Balochistan will remain in the grip of extremely hot and dry weather from Tuesday to Saturday.

“Dust-generating winds are expected in Sindh and Balochistan during periods with daytime temperatures remaining above normal (04-06 ° C higher) in most parts of the region,” he said.

The spokesman said temperatures were also likely to rise in most of the country’s sub-mountainous areas.
