Rain Expected in Pakistan Over the Next 24 Hours

The Pakistan Meteorological Department has issued a weather warning, forecasting thundershowers and snowfall in mountainous regions of the country over the next 24 hours. This weather system is attributed to the influx of westerly winds into the upper regions of Pakistan, which will result in strong winds affecting several areas, including Islamabad, Upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, Kashmir, the Potohar region, and Northeast Punjab. The weather forecast also includes the possibility of rain accompanied by gusty winds and thunder.

Moreover, there is a likelihood of rain and snowfall occurring in mountainous areas from October 14 to 17. Recent rain has led to a drop in temperatures and frostiness in various cities, prompting authorities to close Babusertap Road due to snowfall. Given these weather conditions, people are advised to take necessary precautions to ensure their safety.

As the weather patterns shift and the possibility of rain, snowfall, and strong winds loom, it’s essential for residents in the affected regions to stay informed about the latest updates from the Pakistan Meteorological Department. This will enable individuals to make informed decisions and take the necessary steps to protect themselves and their property.
