Current heat would continue for another 5 days: Pakistan Meteorological Department
Islamabad, June 10, 2014 (PPI-OT): Met-Office informed that the prevailing intense pre-monsoon heat will continue for another 5 days in most parts of the country. The prevailing intense heat is likely to subside after pre-monsoon rain/thundershowers accompanied by dust-storms over Islamabad, Upper Punjab, Upper KP and Kashmir on Monday/Tuesday.
Met-office further informed that a Tropical Cyclone is developing in eastern parts of Arabian Sea that is likely to move in north-westerly direction (towards Oman coast) in next couple of days. Due to north-westward movement of Tropical Cyclone, the current intense heat-wave over Pakistan is likely to further intensify and would extend northward (Islamabad, KP and Upper Punjab) during the weekend (Fri/Sat).
The heat wave will also envelop northern areas (Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir) during the coming weekend, triggering large scale snow-melting from Friday to Monday. The inflows in all hilly rivers of Upper KP and GB-Kashmir and Tarbela Dam may increase substantially during the weekend.
