Pakistan will experience a heatwave from March to May

LAHORE: From March to May, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has warned of above-average temperatures and the possibility of heatwaves; in the most recent Met Office advisory, which was released on Friday, nearly normal precipitation is also anticipated for the majority of the country.

According to the PMD,

The persistent La-Nia condition has finally entered a neutral state and is anticipated to remain neutral throughout the MAM 2023 season (March, April, and May).

The Met Office stated that, overall, a tendency for precipitation that is nearly normal is likely to prevail over the majority of the nation on the basis of the patterns of regional and global circulation.

It stated that the northern regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and the majority of Gilgit Baltistan may experience precipitation that is slightly below normal. The majority of the country’s seasonal mean temperatures are expected to remain above average, with the possibility of heat waves.

In the meantime, Rabi crops are expected to mature earlier as a result of anticipated warmer conditions in the coming months. Additionally, standing crops’ water requirements are likely to rise during the Kharif season.

In the major cities of Islamabad and Lahore, an earlier onset of pollen season would be supported by the rise in maximum temperature and dry conditions.

The conditions in the atmosphere suggest that there will be a heatwave this season; particularly over the country’s plains.

It added that water stress is anticipated for agriculture and domestic needs during the upcoming season due to rising temperatures.

Weather expert Jawad Memon predicted, prior to the PMD alert, that Karachi’s summer could be extremely hot this year due to above-average February temperatures

According to Memon

The rising temperature in February pointed to extremely hot weather in the days to come.

Due to global warming and heatwave, Pakistan has been experiencing an unusual rise in temperatures, which has resulted in prolonged, more intense summers and abundant rainfall.

The country was devastated by devastating floods last year as a result of enormous monsoons.
