Heatwave in Pakistan breaks record, slight relief in offing

Heatwave in Pakistan breaks record, slight relief in offing

08:00 PM


Like West India, Pakistan has also been witnessing extremely warm weather conditions since March. April too started on hotter note and we do not expect much change in the weather conditions in the coming times.

Now, heatwave to severe heatwave conditions have gripped several parts of the country for the last couple of days. Day maximums are now settling in the 43°C to 50°C. In fact, some places have even broken records. In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Larkana recorded 50°C, Mohenjo-Daro 49°C, and Sibbi 48°C.

However, now slight relief is on records. A feeble Western Disturbance has moved over the northern parts of Jammu and Kashmir which has given scattered rain over North Pakistan during the last 24 to 48 hours.

Now, another active Western Disturbance is approaching the region and is presently marked over Central Pakistan. The system is likely to give scattered rains over Baluchistan and parts of North Pakistan over April 21 and April 23.

In wake of these showers, maximum temperatures are likely to drop by 3 to 4 degrees over these areas, bringing in much-needed relief. With this, heatwave conditions are also likely to abate from some parts of the country.
