The last 48 hours brought rounds of rain and snow for Pakistan that was witnessing dry weather conditions for the last 4-5 days. The month of February was, in fact, satisfactory in terms of rainfall with some occasional showers along with snow in higher reaches showing up in parts of the country.
Provinces such as Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, FATA, Islamabad, upper Punjab, Quetta, Zhob, Kalat divisions, and Gilgit-Baltistan received scattered rain and snowfall activities.
In the last 24 hours, Dir recorded 42 mm of rains, Balakot 37 mm, Kalam 30 mm, Cherat 26 mm, Malamjabba 24 mm, Kakul, and Saidu Sharif witnessed 20 mm each, Pattan 19 mm, Parachinar 10 mm, Rawalakot 14 mm, Murree 15 mm, Rawalpindi witnessed 3 mm of rains. Kalam witnessed 2 inches of snow.
As per Skymet Weather, these rain and snow activities can be attributed to the Western Disturbance that is over Jammu and Kashmir and adjoining Pakistan. However, now this weather system is likely to move northwestwards thereby resulting in reducing the rainfall activity over the country in the next 24 hours.
Hence, for the coming 24 hours, mainly dry weather is expected to prevail in most parts of the country. However, rain-thunderstorm (snowfall over the hills) with gusty winds is expected at few places in Hazara division.
