Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has said that heavy rainfall is possible in various parts of the country from July 10 (today) until July 16. The monsoon winds from the Arabian Sea will enter the country today, which will be the cause of these rains. According to PMD, there is a possibility of heavy rainfall in Islamabad, Punjab, and Kashmir from today until July 11, whereas rainfall is expected in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan from July 11 to 15. The Met Office has said that from July 12 to 14, there will be rainfall in the districts of Sukkur, Larkana, and Jacobabad in Balochistan and Sindh. The weather will remain hot in most parts of the country today, with Turbat being the hottest city yesterday, recording a temperature of 46 degrees Celsius. It is reported that light rain is possible today in Sindh’s coastal areas, including Karachi. The highest rainfall of 58 millimeters was recorded in Surjani Town, Karachi, on Tuesday. Due to the rainfall, several flights were canceled in Karachi on Tuesday, while 18 flights were delayed. The heavy rainfall has disrupted the traffic system across the city, with the accumulation of rainwater on major and central highways causing difficulties for citizens. Karachi Mayor Murtaza Wahab visited the city and stated that the situation in Karachi is better, and water drainage from low-lying areas has been carried out. At least one person was killed and another injured in rain-related incidents in Karachi on Tuesday. Different parts of the city received rain, leading to the inundation of low-lying areas.
