In its daily weather report, the PMD outlined various meteorological conditions expected in different parts of the country:

1. Upper Sindh Thunderstorm:

3. Rain-Thunderstorm:

The PMD revealed that the anticipated weather changes are attributed to the approach of a westerly wave towards the upper and central parts of Pakistan on October 21. A westerly wave is a common meteorological phenomenon that often leads to shifts in weather patterns, introducing moisture and the possibility of precipitation.

The PMD’s proactive approach to disseminating weather information plays a vital role in enabling the public to make informed decisions and take necessary precautions. As the country anticipates these weather changes, the department remains vigilant in its commitment to providing accurate and timely meteorological updates.
