Pakistan is expected to receive heavy rainfall this month. Islamabad is already under the influence of climate change, and as we can already see Karachi is also facing change in climate since the past two days.
Pakistan Meteorological Department Director General Dr. Ghulam Rasul said,
“It is very rare that Pakistan has received heavy rainfall which continues for more than three days in the month of April.”
He further said that the recent rain spell along with gusty winds continued for more than three to four days with high intensity over upper parts of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, AJK and adjoining northern parts of Punjab.
“In April, rain spell of low to moderate intensity continues for hardly two days,” he said.
“If the country received heavy downpours this month; then it is good for the country because it will help raise water level in depleting reservoirs, he added.
“It is expected that Pakistan will not face water shortage at least in April and May and farmers will get the required amount of water for wheat crops,” he said.
However after the rain spell in April, the coming week will remain hot and dry, he further revealed.
According to the reports, cities like Karachi, Lahore, Multan are also expected to receive heavy rainfall by the end of this month. Let’s just wait and see whether the reports by MET office actually turn out to be true or not.
