A weak monsoon system from the Arabian Sea may cause light rain in Sindh between August 29 and 30. The monsoon system, which caused heavy rains with thundershowers, weakened further and merged with another low pressure over Balochistan. With this, the possibility of heavy rains has ended in most of the districts of Sindh. During the next three days, drizzle and light rain may be reported in Karachi's morning and night hours.
According to Chief Meteorologist Karachi Sardar Sarfaraz, the sixth monsoon system from the Bay of Bengal, like the previous systems, caused flooding in various central and rural Sindh in Karachi districts due to heavy rains with thunder. Sardar Sarfaraz said the monsoon system which caused the recent rains has weakened further, after which the possibility of unusual showers with thunder and lightning has ended in Sindh.
According to the Chief Meteorologist, there is no possibility of the arrival of any unique system in the next 10 to 12 days. However, a weak system is expected to arrive between August 29 and 30. The said system will come from the Arabian Sea. As per the situation, there is no possibility of abnormal rains under the new system. He said that the case of monsoon rains would remain till mid-September. However, more Monsoon systems may form in September.
