Heatwave Expected to Ease as Rainfall Forecasted in Parts of Pakistan

The Pakistan Meteorological Department has predicted a break from the ongoing heatwave, with isolated rain forecasted in northern regions from May 28 to June 1.

Areas including Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Punjab are likely to experience dust storms and thunderstorms, offering much-needed relief from the intense heat.

In Karachi and coastal Sindh, dust storms are expected on May 28-29. The PMD has advised farmers to take precautions with their crops and warned about potential disruptions due to dust storms and lightning strikes.

While temperatures will decrease in the northern parts of the country, central and southern regions will still be 3-4°C above normal. The public is advised to avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight to prevent heat-related illnesses.

This weather update indicates a temporary respite from the heatwave in some areas, with varied weather patterns across different regions of Pakistan over the coming days.
