The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has predicted thundershowers in Karachi from July 1 till July 5, warning that the heavy rains may also cause flooding.

The Met Office has said that moist currents from the Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal are likely to enter upper parts of the country from today, which may intensify and expand to southern parts of the country by the weekend. Due to this, heavy rainfall with windstorms are expected in Karachi, Hyderabad, Thatta, Badin and Dadu.

The PMD has advised fishermen to remain careful due to rough sea conditions from July 3 to July 5.

Sindh's Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA) has also issued directions to relevant authorities to take all necessary measures to handle an emergency.

It has advised the public to stay away from windows and doors during heavy rain and strong winds, and also avoid driving.

"Travellers and tourists are advised to remain extra cautious during the forecast period," the notification said.

Monsoon rains may start on 30th

The Met Office also said heavy rains may cause urban flooding in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Gujranwala, Sialkot, and Faisalabad from July 2 to 4.
