September 5, 2014 Off By Web Desk

QUETTA: The Monsoon Low Pressure Area (MLPA) is now located over Indian Punjab and is likely to move slightly northward with decreasing tendency. This weather system still has a potential to produce moderate to heavy intensity rainfall over northeast Punjab (Gujranwala. Lahore, Rawalpindi Divisions), Kashmir and adjoining areas during next 24 hours. This may aggravate the flooding in the Jhelum, Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej Rivers and their tributaries.

Punjab Forecast: More widespread rain/thundershowers with isolated moderate to heavy intensity falls are expected in Lahore, Gujranwala, Rawalpindi divisions and Islamabad during next 24 hours. Heavy falls may generate further flash/urban flooding in the vulnerable areas. Isolated rain/thundershowers are also expected in Sargodha, Faisalabad and Sahiwal divisions during the period.

Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan Forecast: More widespread rain/thundershowers with isolated moderate to heavy intensity falls are expected in Kashmir during next 24 hours. Heavy intermittent rainfall may trigger further flash flooding/landslides in the vulnerable areas of Kashmir.

Scattered rain/thundershowers are also expected in Gilgit-Baltistan during next 24 hours.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Forecast: Scattered rain/thundershowers are expected in upper parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (Malakand, Hazara, and Peshawar divisions) while at isolated places in Mardan and Kohat divisions during next 24 hours. Isolated heavy falls are also expected in Hazara division during the period.

Sindh Forecast: No significant weather is expected in Sindh during next few days.
