KARACHI, June 5: Strong winds swept the city on Tuesday as its certain parts received a light rain — about 1mm — triggered by the tropical cyclone 02 A (nick-named Gonu), which is heading to Oman across the Arabian Sea.

The sea was rough and huge waves were witnessed breaking on the beach along Clifton and Seaview Apartments, sending mixed sentiments of fear and enjoyment among the residents as well as picnickers.

Strong breeze caused the mercury to falls slightly as the maximum temperature was recorded at 36 degrees Centigrade. The minimum temperature was recorded at 29.5 degrees Centigrade. The atmospheric humidity, despite traces of rain, dropped by 17 per cent and was recorded at 45 per cent on Tuesday.

There are chances of drizzle on Wednesday, according to the Met office.
