Pakistan Weather Portal (PWP) is the first weather blog in Pakistan. It was created on March 6, 2011 and ceased its daily operations in 2014 and returned back to service in 2021. We here at PWP provide climatic research posts that are verified and cross-checked before publishing.
The Portal inspired a generation of individuals from 2011 to 2014, many who started their own platforms. The blog is founded and edited by Babar Hussain, a climate activist and weather hobbyist who started following weather after the unfortunate and unusual events of June 23, 2007 in Karachi, Pakistan.

Nice work. I am very interested in Meteorology. I am a ex seafarer and such has studied Meteorology. Its great to have Met site on Pakistan. My hat is off to you.
yeh lain baabar bhai :p
Gr8 Man, I also have keen intrest in weather specially rain, thunder storms since Child hood.
Great Work. I appreciate your efforts for this weather blog. I am sure it’ll be very useful for those who keep a close eye on the weather conditions. I’ve already added this blog to my Favorites.
Keep doing the good work. Cheers!
I am Waseem Ahmed (age 35, Nazimabad No. 5 Karachi): It’s great , and might be a bit late, to find such great and first solid and useful ‘weather blog’ or material about Pakistan weather. You believe or not I have great interest in weather related events since childhood. I have about last 22 year Karachi weather summary record of Karachi (as I have been noting day by day condition and temperature of the city in Diary every year) and many stats about the extreme weather in Karachi.
If you would like and permit, I can provide some of the data for your blog.
JazaakAllah & regards,
Wow, marvelous blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is fantastic, as well as the content!
Trust me, the last message is a spam 🙂
keep the good work. I was the one constantly changing Climate of Karachi page in wikipedia and updating it along with you.lol
I was thinking at the time who is the other person who is so mad about climate and he keeps on updating before me.
And yes you are right the rain recorded in different stations of Karachi were above 700 mm in 2010 however Met office only has record of Karachi Airport. However the eman average rainfall should be the average of all the stations in a city and not just the one station.
Hey bro u really have done a gr8 job… and i ave also a gr8 interest in climate and weather since childhood and now a days its on the peak due to the monsoon has just started to penetrate in different parts of the country… So i’m very thankful to you that you have made such a nice platform through which i can get updates of weather at any time….
Great effort. Lots of luck. One comment – you’ll round off your reports much more completely if you include forecasts. In specific, the 17th July 2011 article is comprehensive in describing the end of the 3rd phase of the Monsoon – but its missing the one-liner about when/ how long/ how intensive is the 4th phase predicted.
Job well done. Keep up the good effort.
I’m very impressed by this site. I’m 19 and I’m crazy about windstorms and intense weather. I have been personally accumulating extreme weather for Rawalpindi, my hometown. I’m so glad to see a weather blog dedicated just for this purpose and sure is the best I have ever seen from Pakistan! 🙂
Aslam o alikum

Baber Hussain bhai we all congratulate you to create such beautiful and informative blog here in pakistan.for that i must say awesome work keep going up…. Allah Bless you.
Nice Work.. Thanks.
A very good effort and a useful site that can be improved considerably.
This 3rd para in “who we are” needs to be rewritten in a logical and scientific language. The sentences and conclusions do not make rational sense.
Important that souces of metreological information presented here are quoted.
Important is the prediction of the expected weather in the comming days, at least for a week. And also a comparison of the prediction with the actual after the end of the weak.There is not much I could find in this respect.
the aim of this portal sbohld be to find out wether monsoons are undergoing a change inpPakistan. This is important as it willl tell us bow many inches of raim has sindh and balucbistan. is it increasing .this a shifting upwards of arabian sea monsoon.
This is very use full blog,its help me alot as a farmer,good job but unfortunately no up date snice monsoon,please update regularly thanks

Hi! I’ve been following PWP for a very long time. I’m so happy that it is operational again. Is it the same team?
You guys are back! So happy that pwp is operational again. ❤
Thank you so much, it is a great pleasure to know that our followers still remember us. Yes, it is the same old team. The rapid change in weather patterns and unusual climatic events made it impossible to stay inactive.
