Chilly weather continues to clutch parts of Pakistan after last night’s rain and snow further intensified the freezing conditions prevailing in the country. So much so that in the last 24 hours, the minimums dropped to sub-zero levels in the upper reaches of Pakistan.

Today morning, Skardu recorded a freezing -7°C, Gupis and Kalat recorded -4°C each, Parachinar, Rawalakot both recorded -3°C each. Meanwhile, the minimum descended to -2°C at Astore as well as Kalam.

As per Skymet Weather, a fresh Western Disturbance is affecting Pakistan and its induced cyclonic circulation is over the central parts of the country. This weather system was responsible for giving widespread rain and snow over the hilly regions of the country.


The rainfall recorded in various districts of the country include Kalam at 8 mm, Dir 4 mm, Chitral 3 mm, Pattan 2 mm and Drosh at 1 mm.

On the other hand, the weather remained dry yet very cold over Balochistan and Punjab divisions of the country. Karachi also witnessed dry weather conditions, however, here, it remained sunny and warm.

As of now also, cold weather is expected to continue in most parts of the country. Rain and thunderstorms with light snowfall may continue to freeze the isolated places of the upper Punjab division, Northwest Frontier Province, Malakand, and Gilgit-Baltistan.

Also, dense fog may occur in the plains of Punjab and upper Sindh during the morning and night hours. However, a marginal relief in the form of rise in the minimums is likely in Punjab Division and North Balochistan in the next 24 hours.

Meanwhile, the weather of South Punjab Division, Balochistan and Sindh are likely to remain dry and cold. Moreover, another Western Disturbance is expected to affect the northern parts of Pakistan around February 4 which may once again give rain and snow over the upper reaches of the country.
