Karachi, Sindh Weather Update For Ashura Days: Friday brought a hint of relief to Karachi and other parts of Sindh as sporadic showers graced the region, tempering the heat gripping the populace.
These light rains played their part in dropping the mercury level, offering a brief escape from the intense muggy conditions. Unfortunately, this respite was short-lived as high humidity levels surged post-rains, triggering uncomfortable sweatiness among residents.
As per the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), most of Sindh is expected to endure mainly hot and humid conditions in the next few days. That said, there is some anticipation for light rain or drizzle in coastal areas, including Karachi.
Rainfall stats (mm): Rohri recorded 37mm, Larkana 23mm, Mohenjo Daro 20mm, and Karachi a mere 1mm.
An intriguing synoptic situation is developing: monsoon currents from the Arabian Sea are steadily infiltrating most regions of Pakistan. Alongside this, a westerly wave is impacting the upper and central sections of the country.
These conditions will likely bring hot and humid weather in most districts of Sindh on Friday night. However, during this time, Khar, Kashmore, Larkana, Naushahro Feroze, and Shaheed Benazirabad may experience rain-wind/thundershowers.
Isolated light rain or drizzle is forecasted for coastal areas of Sindh, including Karachi.
Saturday predicts a similar weather pattern for the province, with hot and humid conditions expected in most districts. Some respite may come in light rain or drizzle at scattered locations in coastal areas, including the bustling port city.
On Friday, Karachi’s maximum temperature hit 33 degrees Celsius, with the evening’s relative humidity being logged at 75 percent.
Over the next few days, Karachi’s maximum temperature will fluctuate between 32-35 C.
