Geo News cited Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) Director General Dr Ghulam Rasool as saying that the temperature in Nawabshah on April 30 was the highest ever recorded in Pakistan in the month of April.

An expert on global weather extremes, Christopher Burt told the Washington Post that Nawabshah probably had the highest temperature "yet reliably observed on Earth in modern records."

The report stated that Burt's observation cannot be confirmed as the World Meteorological Organization does not conduct official reviews of such monthly temperature extremes.
