Yesterday’s low pressure over west Madya Pradesh and adjoining Rajasthan now lies over north Madya Pradesh and adjoining Utter Pradesh while the upper air cyclonic circulation is south-west of the weather system. Yesterday’s upper air cyclonic circulation in the north-west Bay of Bengal, it has intensified into a low pressure.

The fifth monsoon spell has significantly weakened in the north as expected, partly/mostly cloudy weather expected in the northern areas with chances of showers/rain along with thunder/lightning in one or two areas of upper parts of Punjab (Lahore, Gujrat, Gujranwala and few adjoining areas), Azad Kashmir (Rawalkot, Kotli, Mirpur and adjoining areas) and adjoining Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (Dera Ismail khan, Tank and adjoining South Waziristan) till July 27.  Light to medium intensity showers/rain occurred in south Punjab, chances of light to medium intensity showers/rain persist in south and central parts of Punjab till July 26/July 27 (Faisalabad, Multan, Bahawalnagar, Bahawalpur,Vehari, Dera Ghazi Khan, Okara, Pak Pattan and few adjoining areas).

  1. Hey Mr. Babar, when you report the rainfall for the capital you should use Zero Point which is the official representation of Islamabad weather (located in center of Islamabad city) as Islamabad Airport is actually located in Rawalpindi and doesn’t represent Islamabad’s rainfall directly. Don’t be decieved by the name 😉
    Amazing Article btw!

    • Yes I am well aware that ISB Airport is in Rawalpindi since the rain stats of provincial capitals were taken from the Airport I thought that the rain stats of ‘Islamabad Airport’ should be taken.
      But anyways I will change it.
      Regards.
