Pakistan reels under extreme heatwave, highest temperature touches 52 degrees in Mohenjodaro

Heatwave conditions firmly gripped Pakistan, disrupting normal life in the country, with the mercury level touching around  52 degrees Celsius in archaeologically crucial Mohenjodaro, as per Met office.

As per the National Weather Forecasting Centre in Islamabad, the highest temperature in Mohenjodaro touched 52 degrees on Tuesday.

Temperature touched a scorching 52 degrees in Nawabshah region of Sindh.

50 and above temperature was also reported from Dadu,Sukkur and Sibbi.

A weather official earlier told ARY News that current hot weather spell likely to persist till four or five June.

The annual average global temperature approached 1.5° Celsius above pre-industrial levels – symbolic because the Paris Agreement on climate change aims to limit the long-term temperature increase (averaged over decades rather than an individual year like 2023) to no more than 1.5° Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

Six leading international datasets used for monitoring global temperatures and consolidated by WMO show that the annual average global temperature was 1.45 ± 0.12 °C above pre-industrial levels (1850-1900) in 2023. Global temperatures in every month between June and December set new monthly records. July and August were the two hottest months on record.
