KARACHI: The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said that despite the prediction of hot weather in the port city, there is a chance of drizzling at night. According to the Met Office, the weather in Karachi, however, will continue to remain hot and humid in the next 24 hours.The minimum temperature recorded today was at 30.5°C while the maximum temperature is likely to hover between 34°C to 36°C, said the weather department. Moreover, the level of humidity in the air is 73% and sea winds are blowing at a speed of 21 kilometres per hour. Residents of the provincial capital have longed for a break from the sweltering temperatures that have recently gripped the city.But, so far, Karachi has only received drizzle in some areas which improved the weather but was still not enough to break the heat spell.Earlier this week, Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz said that the metropolitan city is likely to witness rains after July 8.The official’s remarks came as the PMD has predicted “vigorous monsoon activity” in the upper and central parts during the week courtesy of strong monsoon currents from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal.
