KARACHI: The Met Office has forecasted that the intensity of the current heatwaves in Karachi and Sindh Province will increase further from May 26 to May 27.

Temperatures are expected to rise significantly, with interior Sindh cities seeing an increase of 5°C to 6°C.

In Jacobabad, Larkana, Dadu, Moenjo Daro, and surrounding areas, temperatures could reach up to 50°C.

In Karachi, the temperature is expected to reach 38°C on May 26 and 27. The Met Office predicts that the heatwaves will persist until May 27.

According to Mahr Sahibzad Khan, director of the Met department in Lahore, temperatures are likely to escalate further in Sindh, Punjab, and Islamabad. Specific regions such as Mohenjodaro, Jacobabad, Thatta, Benazirabad, and Nawabshah could see temperatures soar to an unprecedented 50°C.

Similarly, areas in Punjab currently experiencing 46-degree temperatures may see an increase to 48-49 degrees. Islamabad, which is presently at 41 degrees, may climb to 43-44 degrees.

The current heat wave is the second spell to hit the country, and forecasts indicate a potential third wave in June. Khan highlighted the micro-impacts of the heat wave, noting that smaller towns and cities might experience even more intense conditions.

Meteorologists have suggested that precautionary measures should be taken everywhere, be it in cities or villages. “The temperature is likely to rise further in Sindh, Punjab, and Islamabad,” Khan stated. “In some areas, the temperature may reach 50 degrees.”
