KARACHI: The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has forecast partly cloudy skies and strong winds in the port city in next 24 hours.

The PMD also said that while partly cloudy conditions are expected to persist today (Thursday), the residents of Karachi may also look forward to light rain or drizzle in the evening or at night.

According to the forecast by the Met Office, the maximum temperature is expected to range between 34°C to 36°C today with a humidity level of 79%.

Meanwhile, the minimum temperature in the last 24 hours was recorded at 30.5°C.

Additionally, the meteorology department also revealed that the sea breezes have returned to the provincial capital of Sindh and are blowing at a gentle pace.

For the past few weeks, Karachiites had looked forward to the beginning of monsoon rains in hopes for some respite from the heat spell which has gripped the entire city.

But, while the city has experienced a slight drop in temperatures recently, following heavy showers earlier this week, residents have not yet experienced a significant respite from the heat.

Fortunately, there is still hope for the residents and the city as the PMD has predicted heavy rains in the metropolis after July 20.
