[Update]: In the forecasted heatwave to hit Karachi, the temperature is expected to go as high as 44 degrees. As of now, the temperature is recorded at 37 degrees and humidity is at 23%.
The hot weather, according to the PMD, was due to Typhoon Tauktae that was headed towards Pakistan. It has changed direction and is now headed towards Indian Gujarat. However, the effects on weather in Pakistan will continue to persist. So the weather will continue to remain hot for a few days.
Seeing that Karachi was hit terribly by the rains last year, the prediction of rain in the past few days has led to the notification for cleaning 41 drains in the city.
