Karachi Heatwave Coming To An End As Cyclone Vayu Weakens
On June 12, the Met department issued a heatwave warning for Karachi in the wake of Cyclone Vayu. Tropical Cyclone Vayu crossed the coastal areas of India after which it weakened. As a result, suspended winds from the sea have been restored after four days in Karachi. With the restoration of southwestern winds on Tuesday, it is predicted that heat intensity will reduce further.
However, showing slight improvement, weather in the city will still remain hot with raised humidity levels. Met Office has also forecast that weather will remain partly cloudy in the coming days.
In turn, Karachi experienced northwestern and northeastern winds from Balochistan, which kept the weather hot and dry.
Karachi Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz said that while Cyclone Vayu had caused rainfall in India, its impact was neutralised in Karachi and rural Sindh, adding that the weather would remain moderate in the coming few days.
