KARACHI: As hot weather continues to grip Karachi with intermittent showers, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) predicted heavy rains in the metropolis after July 20.

A day earlier, the port city received heavy showers in the noon in several areas including Saddar, II Chundrigar Road, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, North Karachi and Gulistan-e-Johar.

The rain put the city to a halt as the streets were seen flooded by rainwater with traffic being affected as well.

However, the PMD said that despite the prediction of hot and humid weather in the next 24 hours, there is a likelihood of rain and drizzle in several parts of the city today.

The maximum temperature is likely to be 35°C to 37°C while the humidity ratio in the air is expected to be 80%, said the PMD, adding that the winds are blowing from the west at a light speed.

It also added that the sea breeze is likely to resume in the evening.

Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz said that some places are likely to witness light rain or drizzle today. "Low air pressure that caused rain in Karachi has moved towards Oman," he said.

He said that clouds may be formed locally due to heat, adding that the weather in the city will be better for the next three to four days.
