Weather tracker: temperature may plunge to 5C in parts of Sindh

KARACHI: The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has forecasted that a “cold wave” is expected to grip Sindh, including Karachi, starting Thursday.

According to the forecast, minimum temperatures in Sindh are expected to drop to as low as 2-4C in districts such as Larkana, Qambar Shahdadkot, Kashmore, Jacobabad, Jamshoro, Dadu, and Tharparkar.

Mercury is also expected to drop to 3-5C in Shaheed Benazirabad, Naushahro Feroze, Khairpur, Sukkur, Ghotki, and Sanghar districts.

In Karachi, Hyderabad, Tando Allahyar, Tando Muhammad Khan and Thatta districts, the minimum temperature is expected to range between 5C and 7C.

Weather analyst Owais Hyder, the founder of Pak Weather Network, said the majority of Pakistan will experience extreme weather conditions in the coming days due to a “weak polar vortex” that is causing Siberian winds to blow with full intensity in the region, potentially leading to record-breaking events for the winter season.
