Monsoon 2011 update
- Third monsoon spell in full swing in Pakistan!
- Western trough and eastern currents interacting!
Karachiites eagerly waiting for first drop of rain!
Lots of thunder, winds, rainfall, black clouds and lightening, this is what Punjab, Khyber, Kashmir and few parts of Gilgit are experiencing since few days. The third monsoon spell will continue till July 17 with occasional gaps, the interaction between a western trough and monsoon currents from the Arabian sea is the main cause that would cause some heavy rainfall but no flooding-like situation likely at the moment, at least not from the third spell. After July 17, a break is expected all over Pakistan but few isolated thunderstorms can not be ruled out during that period. During the last week of July, a fourth spell of monsoon and a final monsoon rainfall of July is expected in these same areas.
