Karachi weather update: Temparatue to rise in Karachi

According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), Karachi will remain partly cloudy, hot, and humid over the course of the next 24 hours with a high temperature of 33°C to 35°C. Cyclone Biparjoy’s threat has diminished, halting coastal winds.

Additionally, the port city’s minimum temperature was 30°C.

“The percentage of humidity in the air is 76%, and windspeed is 14km/h from the southwest,” the PMD added.

However, while the city battles the heat, southeast Sindh, eastern Balochistan, north/eastern and south Punjab, the Pothohar region, Kashmir, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are anticipated to see dust/thunderstorms with scattered heavy rain and hailstorms during the course of the next 12 hours.

In southeast Sindh, severe dust storms with thunderstorms and rain are also predicted.

Over the country’s plains, it’s also possible for dust storms or winds to stir up dust.

Meanwhile, as the threat posed by Biparjoy, which has further weakened into a “depression” today, lessens, residents of the port city are prepared to resume their normal life.

Today will see the return of exams for intermediate students and for all Karachi workplaces.

The PMD has predicted that more rain-thunderstorms with few heavy falls and gusty gusts of 30-40km/h gusting 50km/h are expected in Tharparkar, Umerkot, and certain areas of Badin districts today. This is the cyclone’s final update.

In addition, rain-thunderstorms are predicted for the districts of Thatta, Sujawal, and Mirpurkhas.

“Fishermen of Balochistan can resume their activities from today and those of Sindh from tomorrow,” the advisory said.

Furthermore, residents of Sindh’s coastal areas, forced to flee their towns and villages ahead of Biparjoy’s landfall, are returning to their homes as the emergency in these areas was listed on Friday.

Sindh’s coastline was spared from substantial damage because the hurricane made landfall near the Indian Gujarat coast and the Pakistan-India border a day earlier.

Thousands were left without electricity as a powerful storm made landfall and rain pummeled the Indian and Pakistani shores late Thursday. Roofs were blown off houses, trees and electric poles were toppled, and thousands of homes had their roofs blown off.

Before the cyclone arrived, at least two persons in Gujarat, a state in western India, perished after being swept away by floodwaters. However, the storm had little effect on Pakistan, with some areas of the highly alert southern city of Karachi reporting rain.

In recent days, more than 180,000 people were evacuated in Pakistan and India as officials prepared for cyclone Biparjoy, which means “disaster.”
