More than dozen dead!
Obey Government’s warning!
It has become a yearly story in Punjab, fog is becoming the second most deadly weather in the country after the monsoon season. In Multan district at least 18 people died due to the dangerous fog. Many cities of Punjab have been effected which include Lahore, Gujranwala, Jhang, Layyah, Sargodha, Faisalabad, Bahawalpur, Rahim Yar Khan and Bahawalnagar.
North-eastern and south Punjab is covered with thick fog which would only ease significantly if there is proper winter rain which is no where to be seen. A weak western system might cross from Gilgit-Baltistan from tonight till December 19 noon that might bring isolated showers with thunder/lightning in Islamabad and other surrounding areas however it might have no to little influence on the foggy conditions in Punjab, the fog might ease in the province during the weekend.

Aasalamualikum! after a very long time you are back. In 2012 december there were proper winter rains. Why not in december 2013?
Yes there was one good spell in December 2012. It has rained too in December 2013 however it was light. There are many atmospheric conditions that alter the weather for instance if monsoon 2013 was good that does not mean monsoon 2014 will also be good.
Babar bhai when will Risalpur receive its first proper winter rain of this winter 2013-2014?
Proper rain not seen yet, on the weekend there can be some hit-or-miss showers with thunder/lightning.
could you please tell me the foggy season and foggy timing of the highways in Punjab, Pakistan?? which are the best timings for driving in Punjab highways??
Thanks & regards,
Foggy conditions would subside during the weekend, for the timings I think its better if you check government’s website for such information.
What is the winter 2014 forecast for south punjab?
I have not looked into the long range forecast yet. Would make Pakistan Winter Outlook article soon.
Thanks Babar bhai.
