LAHORE – Karachi, Interior Sindh and some other parts of the country are set to swelter, again, through another heatwave that could last three to four days.

Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) Friday said the sea breeze that usually keeps port city’s weather in check is expected to give way to hot winds coming in from the plains of interior Sindh.

As a result, temperatures in the country are expected to surpass 40° Celsius from Saturday. Earlier, temperatures over the past 10 days have remained 3° Celsius below average, the report added.

PMD said that a dust storm is expected in Hyderabad and Mirpurkhas divisions, in addition to gusty winds that will add to the hot weather.

In addition, there is a forecast of rain and thunder in Malakand, Hazara, and Gilgit-Baltistan, and at some locations in Mardan, Peshawar, Kohat, Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Sargodha divisions, Islamabad, FATA and Kashmir.
