Islamabad – The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has issued a warning about an imminent spell of substantial rainfall across various regions of the country. This weather phenomenon has raised concerns over the possibility of urban flooding and flash flooding, particularly in major cities. The forecast includes predictions of thundershowers accompanied by strong winds, along with isolated instances of heavy precipitation, in parts of Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Islamabad, and Gilgit-Baltistan.
The PMD further cautions that the projected moderate to heavy rainfall might lead to increased water flows in several prominent areas such as Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Murree, Galliyat, Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan, and the hilly terrains of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
This weather pattern is attributed to the infiltration of moist currents from the Arabian Sea into the upper regions of the country. In addition, a shallow westerly wave has been identified in the upper parts of the nation.
The upcoming Sunday is expected to witness sultry weather conditions prevailing in most parts of the country until noon.
The PMD’s warning serves as a timely reminder for residents and local authorities to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to minimize the potential risks associated with heavy rainfall and subsequent flooding. Proper preparedness and response measures are crucial to ensure the safety of communities and minimize property damage.
