Balochistan rain

QUETTA: Balochistan is finally experiencing the much-anticipated winter charm with rain and snowfall gracing its various cities.

Quetta is witnessing the onset of rain, bringing a picturesque winter landscape.

However, winter wonder comes with its set of challenges.

The precipitation in Quetta has led to power outages in various areas, disrupting normal life.

The lack of electricity has also hampered water supply, rendering it difficult to provide potable water to the residents.

Friday weather forecast: which cities will have fog?

To compound the situation, the telephone and internet systems are grappling with disruptions, causing communication issues across the affected areas.

Ziarat, too, has been blessed with rain and the season’s inaugural snowfall, enhancing the scenic beauty but intensifying the cold spell.

According to the Meteorological Department, the weather will be cold in most of the districts of Balochistan. The northern districts of Quetta, Zhob, Pishin, Chaman and Ziarat and surrounding areas are likely to experience partly cloudy weather and light rain.


Meanwhile an ongoing cold wave has taken hold in Karachi after the temperature dropped to14 degrees Celsius. However, the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) forecast a further decrease in temperature during two days.

The Met Office in a bulletin on its website, reported that Karachi became more cooler on Friday while on Saturday mercury is anticipated to lose one degree Celsius and will remain between 13 and 15 degrees Celsius.

North-easterly winds blowing in Karachi at a speed of 13 kilometres per hour made people shiver in a city that otherwise enjoys moderate weather.

Additionally, light rain or drizzle is also expected in Karachi and other districts of the province.

On the other hand, heavy fog is likely to prevail in Jacobabad, Mohenjodaro, Sukkur, Larkana, Dadu, Ghotki, Khairpur Padaidan and other upper areas of Sindh during morning and night hours.

Upper areas of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will also experience smog and low temperatures during the day, where the mercury will remain at 0C to 8C.
