KARACHI: The blazing sun will continue to torment most plains of the country barring some parts of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa provinces to receive rain with thunderstorm and gusty winds in the next twenty four hours, said an official of the meteorological department.
The Met official said a shallow westerly wave is affecting upper and central parts of the country and likely to persist during the next two days.
He said hot and dry weather is expected in most parts of the country. However, rain with thunderstorm and gusty winds is likely in isolated places in Sargodha, Faisalabad, Sahiwal, Multan, Malakand, Hazara, D.I Khan, FATA, Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir in the next twelve hours.
