Karachi is now the second most polluted city, according to the Air Quality Index

Karachi is currently facing a concerning decline in air quality, earning the unenviable title of the world’s second most polluted city, according to reports from the Met Office.

The city’s temperature has fallen to 13.5 degrees Celsius, leading to colder nights and worsening the air quality predicament. Particulate matter has spiked to 262, signaling a notable increase in pollution levels.

This undesirable air quality is the result of various factors, including dry weather conditions. The expected maximum temperature in Karachi ranges from 28 to 30 degrees Celsius, with humidity at 57%. The weather forecast predicts a continuation of cold and dry conditions in most Sindh districts, with the potential for fog and smog in specific areas.

Furthermore, Balochistan is poised to encounter cold and frosty conditions, especially in its northern districts. This situation underscores the necessity for proactive measures to address air quality concerns in Karachi and emphasizes the profound impact of weather conditions on environmental factors.
