Dadu, Jacobabad bake at 50 as hot weather sweeps Pakistan
It is yet another sizzling hot day in most parts of Pakistan as the sun started Tuesday from where it had left on the previous day, making any outdoor activities nearly impossible for some and very difficult for others despite the Eid holidays, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
It is in complete contrast with the first 20 days of May, when the weather remained mild with the exception of southern region, as the temperature has shot up a few days before start of Eid holidays.
And to make the things even worse while killing any hope of improvement, the forecast released by Pakistan Meteorological Department says there is no chance of rain during the next 48 hours.
It is extremely hot in most parts of the country, especially in central and southern parts of the country, with the mercury touching 50 degree Celsius at Jacobabad, Dadu and Shaheed Benazirabad in Sindh on Monday.
Meanwhile, the maximum temperature recorded in Padidan and Noorpur Thal was 49 degree Celsius.
Same was the case in major cities of Punjab where the maximum temperature in Lahore was 43. But it was even higher in other areas as it reached 47 in DG Khan, 46 in Multan and Bahawalpur, 45 in Sargodha, and 44 in Jhelum and Faisalabad.
In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, it was 44 degree Celsius in DI Khan, 43 in Bannu and 42 in Peshawar.
On the other hand, Sibi was the hottest place in Balochistan where the mercury touched 47 degree Celsius followed by 43 in Nukundi and 42 in Turbat.
Earlier, this hot weather claimed 14 lives on Monday as 14 youth drowned in different parts of country in their attempt to beat the heat.
