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.
