The Meteorological Department on Monday forecast rain for Karachi today, after last week’s downpour left roads across the city flooded and triggered power outages across the metropolis.
The Met office said that the metropolis — despite the fact that it did not receive any rain last night — could receive moderate to heavy showers by Monday evening or night in certain areas.
The Met department said that the monsoon winds will cause rain in eastern and central Sindh after which they are expected to move towards southern Punjab and the north. These winds are expected to cause heavy rains in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan.
On the other hand, heavy rains lashed Hyderabad, Mirpur Khas, Sukkur and Thatta on Monday, inundating low-lying areas and disrupting power supply as well.
Heavy rains lashed Islamabad, Pakpattan, Sialkot, Chichawatni, Jhelum and Nikail, Azad Kashmir today as well.
