ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Dense fog is likely to grip plain areas of the Country from Thursday onward due to persistent cold wave gripping most parts of the Country, according to the weather experts.
“The present rain spell started from Monday will end on Wednesday in most parts of the Country while temperatures will significantly fall in the coming days,” the Meteorologist at Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) Imran Ahmad Siddiqui said while talking to the state-run news agency on Tuesday.
Imran Siddiqui said the Met Office earlier forecast three rain spells during the month of December and the present rain spell was the second one. The third rain spell is likely to start in most parts of the Country during the last 10 days of the month.
The Meteorologist revealed that there are also chances of frost due to chilly weather in the coming days.
The present rain spell like the earlier one has increased water availability in the reservoirs, benefited wheat crop at sowing stage and relieved the citizens from smog related diseases, he said.
Talking about the snowfall, the Meteorologist said that snowfall will continue in Galiyat, Muzaffarabad and other mountainous areas during the rain.
During the next 24 hours, more rain-thunderstorm with snowfall over the hills (with few hailstorm) is expected at isolated places in upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, upper Punjab, Islamabad, Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan while cold weather is likely in Sindh and Balochistan.
A westerly wave is affecting upper parts of the Country and may persist till Wednesday.
