Heavy rains forecasted for Karachi in August
Karachi is likely to endure "more than normal heavy rains" between 12 and 14 August, according to meteorologist Jawad Memon.
The update followed the National Disaster Management Authority’s (NDMA) report on the record rainfall that devastated the country in June and July and claimed the lives of more than 300 people.
The analyst also said three or four monsoon systems could enter Sindh next month and impact on its weather conditions.
The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said the weather in Karachi is likely to remain cloudy for the next 24 hours, with a drizzle predicted.
The PMD also reported a humidity of 81% in the morning and winds from south to west at an altitude of 18 km.

According to the PMD forecast for the country for the month of August, most parts are likely to have “above-normal” rainfalls as a result of global and regional traffic patterns.

Similarly, most of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Balochistan could receive “slightly above normal” rainfall, while Gilgit Baltistan may experience “almost normal” rainfall.
