The provincial capital of Sindh is likely to witness next week its coldest day in over 70 years as the mercury drops to a chilling 3 degrees Celsius.

According to Pakistan Meteorological Depart (PMD), the westerly weather system that caused drizzle and cloudy weather in Karachi on Sunday has now moved to Balochistan, but a new cold wave, as witnessed on Monday, will last until January 22.

While the temperature is likely to fall to 3 degrees Celsius, the lowest recorded temperature in Karachi was 3.3 degrees back in the February of 1950.


With rain across the port city on Sunday, the lowest temperature has for now been recorded at 14 degrees Celsius, while the highest was recorded at 23.7 degrees Celsius.

The weather remains cold and dry for now.
