History in Review: 14th & 15th October, 1998



History in Review: 14th & 15th October, 1998:After a very long heat wave from 6th Oct to 13th October 1998 in Karachi (8 successive hot days) in Karachi due to a tropical disturbance in Arabian Sea clouds & rain caused A HUGE DROP IN THE CITY’S TEMPERATURE and brought great relief to Karachiites from a very long hot week (clouds started to arrive from SSE since 13th Oct afternoon, rained all day on 14th Oct with breaks - about 22 mm rain recorded in Nazimabad & I am sure higher amount of rain in SE parts of city and showers on 15th with cold winds).

THE MAX TEMPERATURE THAT WAS 40°C on 13th DROPPED to 31°C on 14th OCTOBER & ONLY 25°C on 15th OCTOBER i.e. “15° FALL IN JUST 2 DAYS” and THIS THE BIGGEST DROP IN TEMPERATURE I HAVE SEEN NOT ONLY IN ‘OCTOBER’ BUT ALSO FOR ANY MONTH IN KARACHI DURING LAST 24 YEARS (according to my recorded data).

Large part of lower, SE and central Sindh also received good rains during 14th and 15th October, 1998.
