Heatwave conditions are expected to continue in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, and other parts of Pakistan on Tuesday, with daytime temperatures forecasted to be 3 to 5°C higher than usual in the twin cities. However, relief is anticipated later in the week due to gusty winds and isolated rain showers.

According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), most areas of Pakistan are experiencing continental air with high-pressure systems in the upper atmosphere, which is likely to persist until May 28. A weak westerly wave is expected to affect northern regions starting from the evening of May 28.

Under these prevailing conditions, heatwaves will persist in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, and other plains of Pakistan on Tuesday, with temperatures remaining 3 to 5°C above normal in the twin cities, 6 to 8°C above normal in Sindh, and 4 to 6°C above normal in Punjab and other regions. Gusty winds, dust-raising conditions, and isolated rain showers are expected in the evening and night, providing some relief from the heat.

Forecasted maximum temperatures for Islamabad are around 40-42°C on Tuesday and 39-41°C on Wednesday, while for Rawalpindi, temperatures are expected to range between 39-41°C on Tuesday and 38-40°C on Wednesday.

During the past 24 hours, most parts of the country experienced heatwave conditions, although there were light rain showers and thunderstorms in Gilgit-Baltistan. Mohenjo-Daro and Nawabshah recorded the highest temperatures at 52°C, followed by Dadu and Jacobabad at 51°C, and several other cities recording temperatures around 50°C and above.
