Monsoon winds to enter from Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal

Monsoon winds are blowing in from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, promising rain across Karachi, Sindh, Islamabad, Balochistan, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, and Kashmir. But hold on to your hats—thunderstorms and heavy rain are also on the menu, so keep your umbrellas handy!

The NDMA has also issued a warning that heavy rains could also lead to flash floods!

The meteorological department has issued a warning that heavy rains from June 28-30 could trigger flash floods in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Sialkot, Gujranwala, Narowal, and the hilly areas of Kashmir. All these areas will see thunderstorms and heavy rain, which could lead to urban flooding in low-lying areas. So, stay updated with weather alerts and be prepared!

Essential Safety Tips to Follow During the Rainy Season:

  • Don’t touch electric wires.
  • Avoid walking in the rain.
  • Beware of bugs.
  • Drive slowly and carefully.
  • Unplug electronic appliances.
  • Close windows and doors properly.
  • Keep an umbrella and raincoat handy.
  • Prepare an emergency kit.

The rain will bring a much-needed drop in temperatures, but it might also disrupt your daily life. Be ready for potential impacts on transportation, electricity, and water supply systems. Stay safe!
