KARACHI: For the past several days, weather in Karachi has been in a state of flux, with temperatures soaring during the day and dropping considerably at night and in the morning.

However, the city witnessed an increase in the average temperature by two degrees Celsius yesterday (Sunday), as a consequence of the arrival of southwestern winds at a speed of 10 kilometres per hour.

According to Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), the temperature is expected to rise to 33 degrees Celsius at maximum and 31 degrees Celsius at minimum during day today (Monday). However, it will likely fall to 15 degrees Celsius at night.

Chief meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz says that so far, the temperatures recorded in the city in the current month have failed to surpass the highest ever recorded in February, adding that the highest temperature to be ever recorded in the month of February was 36.1 degrees Celsius in 1996.
