Pakistan Issues Fresh Alert as Temperatures Rise Nationwide

Pakistan

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) issued a heatwave advisory on Monday, cautioning citizens about an anticipated significant surge in daytime temperatures across various regions of the country from May 21 to 27.

With temperatures expected to rise above normal levels, citizens are urged to take precautionary measures to safeguard themselves from the severe heat conditions.

According to the PMD, Islamabad, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Balochistan are forecasted to experience daytime temperatures soaring 4°C to 6°C above normal during this period.

Meanwhile, Sindh and Punjab are expected to face temperatures elevated by 4°C to 6°C above normal from May 21 to 23, escalating further to 6°C to 8°C above normal from May 23 to 27.

The prevailing synoptic situation indicates the dominance of continental air over most parts of the country, contributing to the heightened temperatures.

Tuesday’s weather forecast predicts predominantly hot and dry conditions across most areas, with particularly intense heat expected in the central and southern regions.

In response to these conditions, the PMD has advised the public to minimize unnecessary exposure to direct sunlight and to utilize water resources judiciously to mitigate the impact of the extreme heat.

Furthermore, the extreme heat and dry conditions elevate the risk of bushfires and forest fires, particularly in vulnerable areas of Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, and northeast Balochistan.

Over the past 24 hours, much of the country has experienced hot and dry weather, with particularly intense heat observed in the southern and central regions. However, isolated instances of rain-thunderstorms were reported in upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan.

As the heatwave advisory remains in effect, citizens are urged to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to ensure their safety and well-being during this period of heightened temperatures.
