Pakistan Met Office Predicts Chilly Tuesday December 26, 2023

Islamabad, December 25, 2023: The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has predicted a predominantly cold and dry Tuesday, December 26, across the country, with temperatures taking a nosedive in the north and pesky fog clinging to the plains.

While most parts will experience the familiar nip of chilly December air, residents of the northern belt, including Skardu, Leh, Kalam, Gupis, Gilgit, and Hunza, should prepare for an extra dose of wintery bite with minimum temperatures reaching as low as -8°C in Skardu and -7°C in Leh. These areas can expect partly cloudy skies, offering glimpses of the sun before returning to the stark beauty of a cold, clear night.

Meanwhile, for those dwelling in the plains of Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, and upper Sindh, the battle against fog continues. This pesky blanket of mist is likely to linger during the morning and nighttime hours, potentially affecting visibility and travel plans. Remember, driving in foggy conditions requires extra caution and alertness.

The Met Office report attributes this chilly Tuesday to a shallow westerly wave hovering over the western regions of Pakistan. While today, Monday, December 25, offers similar weather patterns with cold and dryness dominating most areas, the intensity of the chill will be noticeably heightened tomorrow.

So, Pakistanis, prepare for a Tuesday that’s a notch colder than your typical December day. Layer up, dust off those warm gloves and beanies, and be cautious if venturing out during foggy hours. And for those in the north, brace yourselves for the kind of cold that makes your breath visible and paints the landscape in icy hues.

Stay tuned for further updates from the Met Office as they continue to monitor the evolving weather situation. Remember, being prepared for the cold makes it all the more bearable – so bundle up, enjoy the wintery charm, and stay safe, Pakistan!
