Rain and thunderstorms are predicted to continue until June 1st

Today, most of the plains across the country will be sweltering with intense heat, while the upper regions are expected to receive rainfall from today until June 1st.

The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has issued an alert, cautioning about possible floods in rivers and landslides in hilly areas due to the upcoming weather conditions.

The Meteorological Department has forecasted that temperatures in the plains of Punjab and Sindh will rise up to six degrees above the normal levels. Islamabad is also expected to experience a temperature increase of three to five degrees higher than usual. “The sun will scorch throughout the day in most of the plain areas,” stated a Meteorological Department official.

In the federal capital and its vicinity, there is a potential for an afternoon storm. Meanwhile, the upper regions are forecasted to experience rain accompanied by dust, wind, and thunderstorms until June 1st, possibly resulting in significant weather occurrences.

The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has issued an alert regarding the anticipated heavy rains, highlighting the risk of river flooding and potential landslides in hilly terrains. The authority has instructed relevant institutions to ensure that personnel and equipment are ready to respond to any emergencies that may arise.

Due to shifting weather patterns, there is a chance of reduced intensity in the heatwave in Lahore and other parts of Punjab. The Meteorological Department mentioned that weak westerly winds will influence the coastal areas of the country on May 28th.

The forecast indicates a possibility of rain in various areas including Lahore, Murree, Galiyat, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Attock, Chakwal, Jhelum, Mandi Bahauddin, Gujrat, Gujranwala, Hafizabad, Sialkot, Narowal, Kasur, Okara, and Faisalabad. Additionally, intermittent rain is expected in Toba Tek Singh, Jhang, Khushab, Sargodha, Mianwali, and Sahiwal.

The NDMA alert has cautioned that strong winds and rainfall could potentially cause damage to crops, electricity poles, and buildings. It further advised the public to avoid seeking shelter in structures that may be vulnerable during rainfall to prevent accidents and injuries.

This alert emphasizes the importance of remaining vigilant and prepared as the country faces these extreme weather conditions. Authorities and citizens are encouraged to take necessary precautions to minimize the impact of the heatwave in the plains and the potential risks of flooding and landslides in the upper regions.
