KARACHI: Karachi skipped spring and jumped straight into summer as the mercury hit the 40 degree mark over the last few days, but finally cooled down to 35 degrees on Wednesday. The dry continental air that had caused the dry heat over the past few days is passing and humidity is expected to increase over the next couple of days. The city is expected to witness temperature ranging from 35 to 39 degrees on Thursday, along with a light breeze. However, the mild respite from the scorching heat might be shortlived. “We’re expecting both the temperature and the humidity to rise again,” said chief meteorological officer Mohammad Tauseef Alam.
