Karachi not likely to experience heatwave


KARACHI: Despite temperatures hitting almost 40C in Karachi, the Meteorological Department said Tuesday that there is no imminent threat of a heat wave.

“Temperatures will gradually soar. And, the weather will remain as usual in the next two months,” said Pakistan Meteorological Department Regional Director Shahid Abbas said.

“Karachi citizens need not worry as there is no threat of heat wave in the city.”

He said that the soaring temperature cannot cause much trouble to the citizens due to low humidity, adding that mercury levels will start going down from Wednesday because of the sea breeze.
