Pakistan Met Department Predicts Rain in Punjab and Higher Regions, Bringing Relief from Heatwave

(CTN News) – The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) predicts rain in Punjab and higher regions this week, which will help alleviate the current heat wave.

Almost the entire country has been experiencing severe temperatures due to scorching hot weather, although the heatwave is expected to diminish in some locations beginning on May 28 due to predicted showers.

Most of the country’s plains have remained under harsh weather, with temperatures reaching well above 40°C in several places last week. However, the PMD has warned of isolated wet spells in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, and several Punjab cities.

“The Met Office informed us that a shallow westerly wave is likely to affect upper parts of the country on May 28 (evening/night),” the most recent weather forecast read.

Rain Forecast to Ease Heatwave in Punjab and Higher Regions

Meanwhile, Karachi and other Sindh coastal towns, including Thatta, Badin, and Hyderabad, are expected to see dust storms with strong winds on May 28 and 29.

With the possibility of heatwave conditions subsiding in the upper portions, the intensity of weather is expected to stay in the center and southern areas of the country, namely Punjab and Sindh, with day temperatures remaining 3°C to 4°C above average.

Pakistan is now experiencing a severe heatwave, expected to grow in the following days, particularly in Karachi. The megalopolis is projected to see the “hottest week of the year” this week, with temperatures up to 42°C.
