As almost all parts of Pakistan are in the grip of intense heat these days, there are signs of a temporary relief as the weather department on Sunday forecast rains for the upper and central parts of the country from June 18 (second day of Eid) to June 22, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

In its latest prediction, the Met Office said that moist currents would enter these areas during the aforementioned period, which would produce rains.  

On the other hand, extreme heat persists in the country as the weather department said that day temperatures in Sibbi, Nawabshah and Lahore on Sunday were expected to go up to 48, 45 and 46 degrees Celsius, respectively.

It said that mercury in Karachi would rise to 38 degrees Celsius later in the afternoon which would make the weather worse given a high level of moisture in the air.

The humidity level in the air in the port city stood at 70 per cent in the morning while winds were blowing from a south-westerly direction at the speed of 15 to 17 kilometers per hour.  

Weathermen predicted hot and humid weather for the city during the next 24 hours.

Likewise, no immediate relief is in sight for the people of Lahore where the sun is beating down hard.

The humidity level in the air in the city was recorded at 38 per cent in the morning, while light breeze was blowing at the speed of five kilometers per hour.

The weather is extremely hot in Islamabad, Peshawar and Quetta too.  

However, the department said that rain was likely in some upper parts of the country in the evening.

On Saturday, Bhakkar and Sibbi were the hottest places in the country where the maximum temperature was recorded at 48 degrees Celsius.

Similarly, it was 46 degrees Celsius in Gujranwala, 45 degrees Celsius in Kasur, Hafizabad, Jacobabad, Jhelum, Sargodha, Dera Ghazi Khan and Layyah, 44 degrees Celsius in Dadu and Attock, 43 degrees Celsius in Lahore and Islamabad, 42 degrees Celsius in Multan, Sukkur, Nawabshah, Peshawar and Muzaffarabad, 38 degrees Celsius in Karachi, 37 in Quetta and 36 in Gilgit.
