Karachi, Pakistan’s vibrant urban center, is presently in the grip of a cold spell.

The city has experienced a significant drop in temperature, plummeting by 4°C, reaching a minimum of 14.5°C on Saturday.

According to the city’s Chief Meteorologist, Sardar Sarfaraz, this cold and arid weather pattern is anticipated to persist until Monday, March 4.

This cold wave was instigated by heavy rainfall and thunderstorms that swept through the city on Friday, affecting various areas including II Chundrigar Road, Saddar, Sarjani Town, Malir, North Karachi, Korangi Industrial Area, Orangi Town, Baldia Town, Manghopir, Northern Bypass, and Sohrab Goth Town.

Sarfaraz remarked on the unusual nature of this cold wave for March, a month typically devoid of such chilly conditions.
