Most parts of Pakistan will be facing “exceptionally high” temperatures on Sunday and for much of next week with the meteorological department alerting of another heatwave.
A Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) advisory released on Saturday cautioned that daytime temperatures are expected to remain exceptionally high in most parts of the country over the next 4-5 days.
“Daily temperatures in Islamabad, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Kashmir, Sindh, and Eastern Baluchistan are expected to increase substantially above normal,” said a Met Office spokesperson.
The official added that they anticipated occasional dust storms and dusty winds at the end of the afternoon and early evening during the hot period.
However, there was not all the bad news because the alert indicated that the heat wave is likely to be followed by a rainy spell in the upper and central parts of the country.
