In wake of prolonged dry spell, Pakistan has been battling severe heatwave for many days now. Temperatures across Baluchistan and many parts of Sindh are soaring to new levels every day.


On Tuesday, Jacobabad recorded its day temperature at 50.5˚C, while Sibi saw its day maximum at 49.1˚C.

Further, the bad news is that we do not expect any relief from the blazing hot weather conditions over most parts of Pakistan. According to Skymet Weather, these hot weather conditions can be attributed to the prevailing westerly winds and persistence of an antic-cyclone over Iran.

Dry and hot northwesterly winds would continue to blow over Pakistan for the next four to five days. Thus, we do not expect any relief from the ongoing hot weather conditions over Sindh and Baluchistan.

However, northern parts of Pakistan such as North Punjab and Northwest Frontier province may witness scattered showers between June 15 and June 16. Intensity of rain is expected to increase on June 17, but central and southern parts will still remain dry and hot.

Monsoon also reaches over southern parts of Pakistan between July 1 and July 15. Therefore, we can say that, Sindh and Baluchistan will have to wait for the Monsoon rains to commence and give some relief from the intense hot weather conditions.
