The Met Department said the sea breeze would normally blow during the two days. The city would witness surging temperatures from March 30 to April 1.

Dry weather gripped Pakistan’s port city on Sunday under the influence of a high-pressure area in the atmosphere of upper Pakistan, resulting in an extremely hot day in the metropolis with the mercury touching 40.5°C. The relative humidity (RH) dropped to as low as 8%.

A large number of the city’s residents remained indoors due to the dry and hot conditions in Karachi. Most streets remained deserted as March 27 (Sunday) was the hottest day of the year so far.
