KARACHI: From 5 to 8 May the southern port city will be bracing a heatwave, the meteorological department said Friday.
Met department director Sardar Sarfaraz said mercury would rise to 42 degrees Celsius in Karachi during the period of time.
Sarfaraz has said there will be no sea breeze throughout the heatwave.
The weather would feel hot and humid, he said, because of the hot winds blowing from the north-west.
In mid-April Karachi went through a two-day heatwave where the temperature shot up to 40 degrees Celsius.
This time, the city’s inhabitants will be bracing the harsh temperature while fasting during Ramadan’s holy month.
The city is also under lockdown orders as Sindh reported more than 6,000 cases of coronavirus with 112 deaths.
