Extreme heatwave to continue in many parts of Pakistan till next week!

The weather conditions and the high pressure in the upper atmosphere were the main reason for the heatwave in Pakistan, according to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD).

“During May 21-23, temperatures in Sindh and Punjab provinces are expected to be 4-6°C above normal, reaching 40-42°C,” the PMD said on Thursday. 

“From May 23-27, temperatures are forecast to further rise, reaching 42-44°C, well above average,” it added.

“The heatwave is likely to have severe impacts on urban areas as well,” it said.

Furthermore, meteorologists warned that such prolonged and intense heat waves pose serious risks to public health and safety.
