KARACHI: The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has forecast intermittent showers and thunderstorms in Karachi today (Sunday).

The maximum temperature in the port city is likely to range between 30-32 degrees Centigrade with chances of 80% to 90% humidity.

Karachi and other parts of Sindh could receive more rains till August 9 under the influence of monsoon currents that have entered the province.

In its daily weather report, the PMD said that monsoon currents are penetrating in central and southern parts of the country. A westerly wave is also affecting western and upper parts of the country.

The Met Office said that hot and humid weather is expected in most parts of the country. However, rain-wind/thundershower is expected in Kashmir, upper Punjab, upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit Baltistan. Rain-wind/thundershower is expected at few places in lower Sindh and north Balochistan.

The PMD warned that heavy rains may generate urban flooding in Karachi, Thatta, Badin, Hyderabad, Dadu, Jamshoro, Sukkur, Larkana, Shaheed Benazirabad and Mirpurkhas from August 11 to 13.

On Saturday, the maximum temperature was 32.5 degrees Centigrade with 73% humidity.
