Feels Like Temperature Crosses 50°C in Some Parts of Karachi

Today, Karachi is experiencing an exceptionally hot day, with temperatures soaring to between 40 and 41°C in various parts of the city even before noon. This intense heat is accompanied by high humidity levels, which range from 40% to 60%. As a result, the “feels like” temperature, which combines the effects of heat and humidity, has exceeded 50°C in some areas.

The extreme weather is making it difficult for residents to go about their daily activities comfortably. The combination of high temperatures and humidity is creating a sweltering environment, posing significant challenges for everyone, especially those who need to work outdoors or travel during the day.

Health experts are advising people to stay indoors as much as possible, drink plenty of water, and avoid strenuous activities to prevent heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

In response to these harsh conditions, local authorities have issued advisories reminding citizens to take necessary precautions. They have suggested wearing light, loose-fitting clothing, using fans or air conditioning, and taking frequent breaks if working outside.

The situation is particularly challenging for vulnerable populations, such as the elderly, children, and those with pre-existing health conditions, who are more susceptible to the adverse effects of extreme heat.
