The predicted heatwave in Sindh began on Thursday, with a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius recorded in Mithi (Tharparkar).
According to weather reports, this is the region’s highest February temperature in 80 years.
According to earlier this week’s reports, the region is expected to break similar weather records in the coming days.
The temperature in Sindh is expected to range between 36 and 38 degrees Celsius over the next few days, according to the forecast.
This is according to Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz, who predicts that temperatures will rise in the province’s Tharparkar, Mirpur Khas, Umarkot, Badin, and Thatta districts.
While temperatures in Karachi are expected to reach 33 degrees Celsius on the 17th and 18th of February, temperatures in other parts of Sindh are not expected to rise as quickly.
This warm spell is expected to last until February 21, with the cooling effects of the sea breeze being temporarily delayed due to an Anticyclonic Circulation reaching the coast.
