Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz has predicted dry and hot weather during the country’s Eid holidays in Pakistan.

Mercury is continuously increasing with every passing day, he told a private news channel, causing discomfort and health concerns for citizens.

Daytime and nighttime temperatures are expected to remain unchanged throughout the country, he said and added that “next week will be the hottest week of the year”.

A severe heatwave is gripping parts of Pakistan, with temperatures reaching as high as 50°C in some areas.

“The Met Office has already issued a warning that most plain areas of the country will remain under the influence of a severe heatwave, with dusty winds and thunderstorms likely to occur in some areas on Monday,” he said.

However, Gilgit-Baltistan can expect partly cloudy weather with scattered showers and strong winds, he added.

Citizens are advised to take precautions to stay cool and hydrated, especially during the hottest part of the day.
