Fog to ease, not end!
Snowfall in Gilgit-Baltistan!
Will Islamabad see a proper rain?
The first overall significant drop in temperature in the country has occurred on December 19 night, temperature will further drop during the last days/week of December as stated on the Facebook page during last week of November. Pakistan may continue to experience dry days as no ‘proper’ winter rains/snow is seen till the end of 2013 however isolated showers/rain activity cannot be ruled out! The dry weather has led to severe fog conditions over the plains of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Is there any rain coming?
A western disturbance is over Afghanistan that would start moving into the extreme northern areas of the country from tomorrow mid-day and then it will move into Jammu & Kashmir. During the weekend (December 21 and December 22), rain with thunder/lightning can occur in Islamabad, Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Murree, Muzaffarabad and other adjoining cities, the northern strip of Punjab (Lahore, Sialkot, Jhelum, Gujrat, Gujranwala and adjoining cities) can experience increase in cloudy weather while the intensity of fog will surely decrease.
