Karachiites have to brace themselves as the Met Department has forecasted a partial heatwave in the city on Monday and Tuesday.
According to Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfraz, temperatures soar above 36°C over the next two days due to low air pressure in the Bay of Bengal affecting sea breezes. However, he clarified that this does not amount to a full-blown heatwave.
Even though the extreme heat will diminish after Tuesday, residents should take measures and stay indoors during the hottest part of the day. Limit intense activity, drink plenty of water, and dress in light-colored cotton clothing with loose fittings.
Tharparkar, Umarkot, and Badin in rural Sindh may get light rain on September 17 as the low-pressure system advances towards Rajasthan in India, the Met Department has said.
Authorities have been put on notice to handle any heat-related medical problems over the next three days since the chances of heat stroke and dehydration are rising. Keep calm and be safe, Karachi!
