Scorching heat griping most parts of the country, especially Punjab and Sindh, for the last several days continued on Sunday as well, badly disrupting routine life, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The weather department said that day temperature in Mohenjo Daro, which had touched 48 degrees Celsius at noon, was likely to go up to 51 degrees Celsius later in the day.  

Similarly, the department said, mercury in Dadu would also go above 50 degrees Celsius while it forecast that maximum temperatures in Larkana, Sukkur and Nawabshah would be recorded at 49.5 degrees Celsius and 48 degrees Celsius, respectively.

On the other hand, maximum temperatures in the cities of southern Punjab were likely to fluctuate between 44 and 47 degrees Celsius, the Met Office said, adding, “Day temperatures in Peshawar and Islamabad will go up to 41 degrees Celsius and 40 degrees Celsius, respectively.”  

The current temperature in Hyderabad is recorded 38 degree Celsius and maximum temperature is likely to touch 45 to 47 degrees Celsius today.

According to Meteorological Department, this wave of extreme heat will continue throughout the week.

Pakistan has been experiencing severe climatic changes due to global warming in recent years which has led to frequent heatwaves, rains and droughts.
On May 21, the authorities had urged people to stay indoors ahead of a heatwave which, they said, was expected to last until the end of the month.

Schools in Punjab were closed a few days ago in view of extraordinarily high temperatures.

Chief Meteorologist Dr. Sardar Sarfaraz warned that the heatwave would “intensify” from May 23 onwards, prompting the Ministry of Climate Change and the NDMA to start mass awareness campaigns through television, radio and social media platforms.
