  4. yeah your right wasey bhi its like it hasnt rained in karachi of what we expectd yaar every part of Sindh is flooded every part of Sindh got meaningful rains excpt karachi what a joke i swear

  5. @SAAD :

    Monsoon over for Karachi.
    This strong low pressure didn’t gave any meaningful rains.
    So, it’s better not to expect any rains fr0m the c0ming low pressure too.

    • 4 km/h right now, temp is 33 °C (hot for night), humidity at 55% (rising) all do signal some more showery activity, however the thunderstorm that formed over central SIndh in the afternoon, its one hand is passing over Karachi to head towards ARB..its a small thunderstorm, much is over Gujarat..

  6. @KM :

    Yesterday, the clouds didn’t came like this and the wind didn’t started bl0wing like this.
    Winds suddenly started bl0wing from the North at 30km/h and n0w the winds
    are calm again. :O

  7. @KM :

    BBC map sh0wing that a LOW PRESSURE will reach Sindh by 9th september night/10th september.

    Are they showing the same LOW PRESSURE to come towards Karachi that
    will form in few days ?

  8. guyz don’t waste your time for rain in karachi. i think karachi metro,bbc,pakmet and all the other websites failed to predict rains in karachi aur agar karachi mai heavy rains honi hoten tu wo first spell mai hi hojati.now forget heavy rain in karachi this year.

  9. Still don’t think that it will rain.
    Like always.
    Heat is only what Karachi can GET.
    it was so F*****G hot today yar kya masla ha Yeh :@:@:@

  10. The CUMULONIMBUS clouds that are coming from NE are at a higher altitude than the CIRRUS CLOUDS which means that they are capable of heavy downpours.
    Maybe Hails too.

  11. High level clouds over Karachi right n0w.
    No rain clouds bc0z if they were.
    There would have been s0me lightning activity.
