Longer winter in Karachi
The temperatures in Karachi may drop and the severity of the cold may rise after the first rains of winter, added the PMD.
Back in October, the PMD had warned that winter in the port city is expected to be longer this year and a relevant outlook would be released in the first week of November.
In a daily forecast report, the PMD spokesperson had said Karachi’s weather was expected to get colder at night.
“Due to a change in the wind direction over [every] 24 hours, the weather gets chillier at night,” they had said, adding that October’s average temperature was 21.9°C.
