A rainstorm has lashed twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, turning the weather pleasant and dropping the mercury to 28 degrees Celsius. Also, Murree hills received a heavy rainfall which transformed the hillstation into a perfect holidaying spot for tourists amid soaring temperatures, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

The met office informed that the current weather system in Sindh and Balochistan has weakened in its intensity, as its core has shifted to the south-southwest of Karachi in the Arabian Sea.

But the weather situation in Lahore has irked people due to sultry weather—very hot and humid.

Lahore’s air quality index was recorded at 180 degrees Celsius. 

In Kharian, the strong winds and rain lowered the mercury, making the weather pleasant. 

The current monsoon spell may give rain-wind-thundershower at scattered places (with few heavy falls) in Sindh (Tharparkar, Umarkot, Thatta, Badin, Sangarh, Mirpurkhas, Hyderabad, Jamshoro, Dadu, and Karachi) and Balochistan (Khuzdar, Lasbella, Awaran, Kharan, and Panjgur) on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Met office forecasted that heavy downpour may cause urban flooding in Karachi, Hyderabad, Thatta, Badin, Khuzdar, Ormara, Pasni, and Gawadar during the forecast period.

Heavy falls may generate flash flooding in local Nullahs/Rivers of Barkhan, Zhob, Sibbi, Panjgur, Kohlu, Naseerabad, Nagarparkar, and Dadu.

Windstorms may damage loose structures in vulnerable locations in Sindh and Balochistan.

Sea conditions may become Rough/Very Rough from 3rd to 5th July 2022. Fishermen are advised to take extra care during the period.
