Relief for Sindh
Sindh province had been experiencing harsh rainfall since middle of August till middle of September, but all that appears to be the past thing as no new monsoon spell is in sight and monsoon of 2011 may be coming to an end. In Punjab, too there was a great start to the monsoon season but after middle of August, monsoon activity decreased gradually with the last monsoon spell hitting Punjab, Khyber, Kashmir and Gilgit till September 16. Temperatures have remained low and normal in many parts of the country while high humidity remained in the monsoon belt of Pakistan. All of that is now about to change!

Chapter of monsoon 2011 is closed!
Monsoon may start to withdraw from Pakistan during the next few days. The monsoon withdrawal date for Pakistan is September 15. In 2010, monsoon left the country before September 15. However in India, monsoon completely withdraws by October 15. The withdrawal is attributed to change in the wind direction. This triggers withdrawal of monsoon.
Before monsoon withdraws from West Rajasthan, Pakistan should be monsoon-free. The conditions of withdrawal of monsoon are;
- Reduction in the level of moisture.
- Formation of anti-cyclones.
- Prolonged dry spell.
