The city on Friday received the first spell of monsoon drizzle, that turned the atmosphere pleasant but caused traffic jams on many roads and a prolonged power breakdown. "A well marked seasonal low lies in north Balochistan and its adjoining areas with its trough extending south-eastwards," the met office said, forecasting partly cloudy weather for the metropolis with chances of rain-thundershower in the next 24 hours.
The Pakistan Meteorological Department predicts that floods in the country are less likely this year owing to less rainfall during the ongoing monsoon season but the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) is still prepared to deal with the worst. Dr Ghulam Rasul, Chief Meteorologist at Pakistan Met Department, told Business Recorder on Friday that during this monsoon around 30 to 40 percent less rains are expected. "The monsoon will help increase the water level in dams but there is little chance of floods," he said.
The weather report on Friday (July 25, 2014) and the forecast for Saturday (July 26, 2014).
