The Meteorological Department has issued a heat wave warning to warn people not to take unnecessary risks in the next week or so, especially during peak hours when a person is most exposed to sunlight.
It said that in the next six to eight days, heat will spread over Karachi and the daytime temperature will rise to 40-42°C.
The Metropolitan Office said in the weather forecast that a high-pressure area has formed in Central Asia, causing the Sindh River, including Karachi, to flow from north to northwest. In the coming days, this may create heatwave conditions in the city.
All relevant authorities have been asked to take necessary measures, and people are advised to take preventive measures, such as not going out during peak sunshine hours between 11 am and 4 pm.
