Chief Meteorologist Predicts Monsoon Rains After June 19 in Some Parts of Country

Monsoon Rains

Forecasting more than usual rainfall this year, Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz announced on Tuesday that the first spell of monsoon rains is expected to hit parts of the country after June 19. Sarfaraz, addressing inquiries, clarified that there was no forecast for rain in the plains during Eid-ul-Adha.

The chief meteorologist further indicated that exceptional rains are anticipated this monsoon across various regions of the country.

However, he emphasized that the exact situation would become clearer a few days before the expected spell. “Southern Sindh, including Karachi, are also expected to receive heavy rainfall,” he noted.

In light of the prolonged hot and humid weather, Sarfaraz mentioned that the temperature in Karachi is expected to remain mostly normal, with highs reaching around 35-36°C in June. “Apart from Karachi, Sindh will also experience normal temperatures this month,” he added.

According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), hot and dry weather is likely to prevail over most parts of Sindh until Thursday. The outlook suggests that the temperature is expected to drop to a minimum of 28°C and rise to a maximum of 37°C.

On June 7, after weeks of scorching heat and high temperatures, residents of Karachi experienced relief as light rain brought down the mercury by a few degrees.

Areas that received drizzle included Gulshan-e-Iqbal, University Road, and Gulistan-e-Johar. Other neighborhoods such as Surjani Town, Scheme 33, Hawksbay, Baldia Town, Maripur, and Nazimabad also witnessed light showers that evening.

This change in weather provided a much-needed respite for Karachiites who had been enduring relentless heat. The PMD’s forecast indicates that similar weather patterns are likely to continue, with intermittent showers providing periodic relief from the summer heat.

The anticipation of monsoon rains brings both hope and preparation for residents in the affected areas. Farmers and agricultural sectors, in particular, are looking forward to the rains as they play a crucial role in supporting crop growth and replenishing water supplies.

However, authorities are also bracing for the challenges that heavy rains may pose, including potential flooding and infrastructure strain.

In summary, while the exact timing and intensity of the monsoon rains will become clearer as the season progresses, Chief Meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz’s forecast points to an active monsoon period with more rainfall than usual expected after June 19, providing much-needed relief and posing new challenges for various parts of the country.
