Whenever an active Western Disturbance approaches Western Himalayas, initially it gives rain and snow over the Northern hills of Pakistan as well as over Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK). Due to an induced Cyclonic Circulation over Punjab and Pakistan, scattered rains can be seen over Punjab region. However, this time the induced Cyclonic Circulation is over South Punjab province of Pakistan and adjoining Sindh and West Rajasthan. Hence, light rains over isolated pockets of Sindh have been witnessed.

Moderate to heavy rains and snow have been seen over the northern parts of Pakistan comprising of Dir, Saidu Sahrif, Peshawar, Islamabad, Sargodha, Faislabad and Lahore. Out of which Dir, Balakot received 4 mm of rains whereas Parachinar received around 14 mm of rains. The rest of the regions just witnessed traces of rain.

As per Skymet Weather, the Western Disturbance is now expected to move in East direction towards Himachal Pradesh, therefore post 24 hours, rain and snow intensity is expected to decrease over northern parts of Pakistan. Thus, leading to clear weather by January 13. Not only this, moderate to dense fog with very dense fog over isolated pockets can be witnessed over North-west Frontier Province and parts of Punjab province. In the last 24 hours, Muree, a province in Punjab received 4 mm of rainfall.

In the coming 24 hours, isolated light rains may occur over northern districts of Sindh. Karachi and adjoining areas might also receive light to very light rains with cloudy sky in offing over isolated pockets during next 24 hours.

Not only this, Vice President of Meteorology at Skymet Weather, Mr. Mahesh Palawat predicted that the minimums are expected to rise over Punjab and Sindh province in next 24 hours. The current minimums are in the range of eight to ten degrees. January 13 onward, there will be a fall in minimums by two to three degrees.
