The weather turns pleasant after a dust storm and light rain hit several parts of Karachi on Tuesday evening.
The metropolis has been facing extreme hot weather for the past few days due to the suspension of sea breeze under the influence of the tropical cyclone Tauktae in the Arabian sea.
As per the MET Department, the rains are likely to stop and storm clouds will disappear after two to three hours.
Following the duststorm, a number of Karachiites took to social media to share a weather update.
