KARACHI: On Tuesday, a weather official predicted rain in Karachi on the first two days of September.
According to the forecast, Tharparker and other eastern areas of Sindh will experience rain on August 31.
“A low pressure that will develop in the Bay of Bengal, will bring rainfall in Karachi and other areas”, Director Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said.
An earlier forecast of rain in the last week of August was set aside by the meteorological official.
Windy weather with mild temperatures is expected in the following days, according to the Met Office.
Tuesday will be partly cloudy and windy in Karachi, with the possibility of drizzle in the morning or evening.
“No heavy rain is expected in the last week of August,” said Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz in a previous weather report.
Rains are expected to begin in Sindh after August, he predicted.
Heavy rain expected in several areas of Pakistan: PMD
The Pakistan Meteorological Department has issued a rainfall forecast for August. Heavier than usual rainfall in August is expected in several areas of Pakistan according to PMD.
Pakistan is expected to get average rainfall this month, however, rainfall in the north of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Kashmir, as well as Southeast Sindh, may be higher than average, according to the department.
The Pakistan Meteorological Department has warned that flood is expected due to heavy rain in several parts of Pakistan as heavy rains are predicted in the upper parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Kashmir.
A flood warning has also been issued by the Pakistan Meteorological Department for major cities in Punjab, Sindh, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The central and bordering areas of Sindh, Punjab, Balochistan, and Gilgit-Baltistan are likely to get normal rainfall, according to the department.
Water will be more than enough for the electricity and agriculture sectors, according to the report.
“Right now in Karachi, the sea breeze is strong, therefore there is no upward or downward movement in clouds,” Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz explained, adding that movement in clouds is required for the rain to fall.
A low-pressure system was seen in eastern and central India, but it drifted northward. He said that this is why north Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have been getting a lot of rain.
The Pakistan Meteorological Department has forecast more rain this year. Kashmir, Punjab, and Balochistan are expected to see more than usual showers
