It said that scattered thunderstorm/rains of moderate intensity with isolated heavy rains are expected during the next 24 hours. Meanwhile, wet spell of moderate intensity is likely to continue over upper half of the country.

Isolated heavy rains are likely to prevail over the upper catchments of Rivers Sutlej, Ravi and Chenab, East Balochistan, Southeast Sindh along with DI Khan, Kohat, Bannu, Multan, DG Khan and Bahawalpur Divisions. Isolated thunderstorm/rain of moderate intensity is expected over the upper catchments of Rivers Indus and Jhelum, South Sindh, Islamabad along with Peshawar, Rawalpindi, Sargodha, Gujranwala, Lahore, Faisalabad and Sahiwal Divisions.

So far as the hydrological situation in the country is concerned, it said, all the major rivers are flowing below low flood level. Medium to high level flooding is expected in the hill torrents of DG Khan Division and in the nullahs of Rivers Chenab (Bhimber, Aik, Palku, Halsi, Daulti) and Ravi (Bein, Basantar, Deg, Hasri, Jhajhri) during the next 24 hours.

It has further warned that heavy to very heavy rains may generate urban flooding in Karachi, Hyderabad, Thatta, Badin, Shaheed Benazirabad, Jamshoro, Mirpurkhas, Dadu, Umer Kot, Jaccobabad, Larkana and Sukkur from 24th to 26th July, 2022.

Moderate moist currents from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal are penetrating upper and central parts of the Country up to 7000 feet.
