ISLAMABAD: The Director of Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) Sardar Sarfaraz on Monday said that the weather in Karachi is likely to remain hot and humid for the next three to four days and temperatures may touch 38°C to 40°C.
PMD director added that low pressure in the Bay of Bengal has turned into a depression, which may worsen with time and turn into a deep depression.
The deep depression is likely to cause rains in South Punjab and Upper and Lower Sindh, Sardar Sarfaraz added.
Under the influence of the system, rains are expected in Karachi after September 18, however, a hot and humid climate will prevail before that.
As of 12 Sept, all #India rainfall departure stands at -6%. MJO pulse lingering in phases 3 and 4 into next week can result in favorable conditions for a late-season push of rain across NW & C India perhaps into #Pakistan. Monsoon withdrawal could also be delayed. pic.twitter.com/2ZQrR1dGeU
