Rain Predicted in Karachi Today

Karachi: The Pakistan Meteorological Department has forecast a second spell of winter rain today (Tuesday) in Karachi and various parts of Sindh under the influence of a new weather system.

According to chief meteorologist Sardar Sarfaraz, the city is likely to receive heavy to moderate showers along with thunder and lightning on January 5 and January 6. However, drizzling will begin on January 4 but it can turn into heavy showers.

The minimum temperature of the city is, on the other hand, expected to stay between 14 and 16 degrees Celsius.

Authorities in Karachi have been preparing to deal with the situation.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has issued an alert for the Jinnah International Airport. The CAA has directed officials to address the potential emergency.

Small planes should be parked in a safe place. Birds may come when insects accumulate during possible rains, so keep fumigation equipment ready and bird shooters on the runway, according to the CAA instructions.
