Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) on Thursday informed that moderate monsoon spell is likely to penetrate in upper and central parts of the country from Friday (evening/night) and will strengthen on Saturday.

A westerly wave is also expected to enter upper parts of the country on Saturday.

Rain/wind-thundershowers (with few heavy falls) are expected in Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan, Islamabad, Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa from Friday (evening/night) to Tuesday. Current prevailing hot and humid weather conditions are likely to subside during the period.

Rain-thundershowers with dust-raising winds are also expected in eastern parts of Balochistan (Zhob, Barkhan, Loralai, Musakhel, Sibbi and Kohlu) and parts of Sindh (Sukkur, Jacobabad, Larkana, Shaheed Benazirabad and Mirpurkhas) during Saturday (evening) and Monday.

The department has also alerted that heavy rains may generate flash flooding in local nullah/streams of Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Kashmir and urban flooding in Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Faisalabad and Lahore on Saturday and Sunday.

Possibility of landslides cannot be ruled out in the vulnerable areas of Kashmir, Gilgit-Baltistan and Upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa during the forecast period.
