Thundershower Forecasted for Northern Balochistan on November 18, 2023

Karachi, November 17, 2023: The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has issued a forecast predicting thundershower in northern Balochistan on November 18, 2023.

According to the meteorological report for Saturday, most parts of the country are expected to experience mainly dry weather, with upper and central regions witnessing partly cloudy conditions. Additionally, shallow fog/smog is likely to develop in the plain areas of Punjab during the morning hours. However, rain and thunderstorms are anticipated in northwestern Balochistan.

The PMD elaborated on the synoptic situation, revealing that a westerly wave from the Persian Gulf is approaching the western parts of the country. This weather system is expected to bring significant changes, leading to precipitation in the specified regions.

Over the past 24 hours, dry weather has prevailed over the majority of the country, accompanied by cold temperatures in the northern parts. The recorded lowest minimum temperatures during this period include Skardu at -06°C, Leh at -05°C, Kalam and Gilgit at -02°C, and Gupis and Hunza at -01°C.

The upcoming thundershower in northern Balochistan is of particular significance as it aligns with the broader weather pattern influenced by the approaching westerly wave. Residents in the affected areas are advised to stay updated on weather forecasts and take necessary precautions.

The PMD’s forecast provides valuable information for both the general public and relevant authorities, allowing them to prepare for potential weather-related challenges. Thundershowers can bring relief from dry conditions but may also pose challenges, especially in terms of local transportation and infrastructure.

The recorded minimum temperatures highlight the ongoing cold spell, emphasizing the importance of being weather-aware, especially in the northern regions. The PMD’s continuous monitoring and reporting play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and well-being of the public.

As November 18 approaches, the meteorological department will closely monitor the progression of the westerly wave and issue updates as needed. Citizens are encouraged to follow official weather updates, and authorities are urged to be prepared for any potential impact on local communities.
