Pakistan is gearing up for a spell of rainfall as westerly winds are expected to sweep across the country. This weather system has already brought heavy rains to several neighboring countries, including Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Kuwait, Iran, Yemen, and Oman. According to Pak Weather, which runs the country’s largest network of automated weather stations, the spell of rain is predicted to last from March 16 to the first week of April, affecting several regions of the country.
The arrival of rainfall comes as a welcome relief for residents of cities such as Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Multan, Peshawar, Quetta, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Balochistan, who have been grappling with soaring temperatures in recent days. With the holy month of Ramadan approaching, the rainfall is expected to provide respite to those fasting during the hot summer days.
As temperatures continue to rise across the country, the onset of westerly winds is expected to bring about a significant drop in temperatures after March 20th. This will provide much-needed relief to people living in parts of the country where the mercury has been soaring.
Last week, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) had predicted that most parts of the country would experience rainfall in the first ten days of Ramadan. However, the PMD also warned that the rest of the holy month would see high temperatures across the country.In conclusion, Pakistan is bracing for a spell of rainfall as westerly winds approach the country.
The rainfall is expected to provide respite to residents of several cities, particularly during the upcoming holy month of Ramadan. The onset of westerly winds will also bring a significant drop in temperatures after March 20th, providing relief from the scorching heat that the country has been experiencing.
