rain in karachi

Heavy rains in Karachi a couple of days back - on July 30 and July 31 - had led to flooding in the city and some of its adjoining areas. According to media reports, close to 15 people were killed due to floods. The deaths as reported were largely due to electrocutions caused by power lines.

Every year, several Pakistani cities struggle to cope with deluging monsoon rains inviting huge criticism from the people.

However, the flood condition is improving now as the weather has cleared up with very little rain being observed in Karachi in the last 24 hours. According to meteorologists at Skymet, a feeble Cyclonic Circulation still exists over parts of Sindh in Pakistan, Gujarat and Rajasthan in India. But the system is not strong enough to give any substantial rain in the region. Though cloudy skies and strong winds may be a common feature for the next 4-5 days. Being a coastal area there might be one or two occasions of very light precipitation during this period. Otherwise, the region will remain largely dry.

Forecast of rain in Rawalpindi

Meanwhile, conditions look favourable for more rain and thundershowers in Rawalpindi for the next 2-3 days. The hilly areas may receive one or two heavy spells. There has already been 6 mm of rain in Shamsabad in 24 hours from 8 am on Thursday, while 4 mm of rain has been recorded in Chaklala.

Some good rains have also been recorded in the foothills. According to the available rainfall data, Sialkot airport has received 72 mm of rain in the last 24 hours while, Gujranwala and Lahore city have observed 92 mm and 56 mm of rain, respectively. These rains are due to the axis of monsoon trough shifting northwards.
