Mercury may hit 39 degrees
Karachi will experience a moderate heatwave in the first week of Ramazan, amateur meteorologist Jawab Memon said.
Speaking on SAMAA TV programme Naya Din on Tuesday, he said that in the first few weeks of the holy month the mercury may cross 39 degrees. “After the first and second day of Ramazan, we are expecting the weather to go back to normal.”
The conditions are generally warm in Karachi in the months of April and May, Memon said, adding that the northern winds will turn the weather hot and dry.
He said that there are minimum chances of the shower in Sindh. “Rain and hailstorms are predicted in the plain areas of Punjab, Quetta, and the northern areas,” he added.
Karachi sweltered in the first three days of April when the temperature rose to 44 degrees. The water content in the air was recorded at 8%, according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department.
