KARACHI: The meteorological department of Pakistan has denied any threat of another heat wave in Pakistan including Karachi.

In its recent report it has predicted that climate in June will remain hot and dry in most parts of the country.

The persistent heatwave coinciding with the prolonged power outages have claimed at least 1100 lives in Sindh.

Met Office further informed that one more spell of scattered rain/thundershowers is expected in upper parts of the country during the coming week.
