Light to moderate rain likely in Karachi today

KARACHI: Moderate to light rain is likely in Karachi on Saturday, the Met Office said, adding that the monsoon will continue in the city till August 11, ARY News reported.

According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), the current monsoon over the city will last for a week and within the next few days, another monsoon will enter the city, which may result in heavy rains in the city.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department has released July rainfall data across the country, with Karachi receiving 606 mm of rain for the entire month.

according to information Released by the Met Office, the country received 181 percent more rainfall than normal during the last month, breaking the record for the highest rainfall in the country since 1961.

It said that Balochistan recorded 450 percent more rainfall than normal, while Sindh province recorded 308 percent more rainfall than normal. Karachi’s PAF Masroor base recorded the highest rainfall of 606 mm.

August Weather Outlook

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has predicted above normal rainfall for most parts of the country in August this year.

Overall, in its monthly weather outlook, PMD has forecast above normal rainfall over Northeast Punjab, Kashmir, southern parts of Sindh as well as Coastal areas of Balochistan during August.

Most parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Balochistan may receive slightly above normal rainfall while Gilgit Baltistan may receive almost normal rainfall during August 2022.

The Met Office has warned that heavy rains may cause flash floods in the hilly areas of Punjab, AJK and KP, as well as urban flooding in the plains i.e. major cities of Punjab, Sindh and KP.

According to the Meteorological Department, “Due to extreme hydro-meteorological events in the catchment areas, flooding in the river cannot be ruled out.”

“The higher-than-normal temperatures in the high altitude regions are likely to increase the rate of ice melting in the northern regions, which will likely increase the base flow in the upper Indus basin,” the PMD said in its weather outlook.

Due to rain, sufficient water will be available for irrigation and power sectors during the forecast month.
