With a forecast of light rain at different times during the day today (Sunday) in Karachi, early morning drizzle in different areas turned the city’s weather pleasant.
Apart from Karachi, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has forecast light showers in Sukkur, Larkana and Jacobabad today. Some cities of Punjab, including Islamabad, parts of Khyber Pakhtunkwa, Balochistan, Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan are also likely to receive rain as the Met department warned last week that a monsoon current is continuously penetrating the country.
More rain, wind and thundershowers with scattered heavy falls are expected from July 27-31 with occasional gaps under the influence of this weather system, it said.
As per the latest weather update, the federal capital, Jhelum, Hafizabad, North Waziristan and Azad Kashmir received heavy to moderate rains.
Karachi will likely get “above normal” rainfall in August as well, meteorological analyst Jawad Memon said on Saturday, after record rains caused massive destruction in the country in June and July, leading to the deaths of over 300 people, according to National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).
