Longer winters in Karachi

Back in October, the PMD had warned that winters in the port city expected to remain longer this year.

The PMD spokesperson had said Karachi’s weather was expected to get colder at night. That, in turn, was likely to bring colder nights in the port city, they had said.

“Due to a change in the wind direction over [every] 24 hours, the weather gets chillier at night,” they had said.
