More rains predicted today

More rainfall is predicted in different parts of the country starting on Wednesday (today).


The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has forecast another rainfall wave with isolated heavy falls in several parts of the country this week. However, monsoon activity is expected to decline beginning this weekend.

According to a weather advisory, a well-marked Low-Pressure Area (LPA) over eastern Rajasthan, India, has moved northwesterly and entered Sindh causing light rain. As a result of this strong meteorological system, monsoon currents penetrated the southern and upper parts of the country.

Under the influence of this weather system, more downpours are expected with scattered heavy to very heavy falls in southern Punjab, southern and north-eastern Balochistan from 24 to 26 August with occasional gaps.

Rains, winds, and thunderstorms with isolated high falls are also expected in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan during this period with occasional discrepancies.
