ISLAMABAD:


Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) on Thursday forecasted that it anticipated more rain during the next 24 hours and advised people living in low-lying areas along the streams and nullahs to remain careful. 


PMD spokesperson said that due to unstable weather conditions and significant monsoon rains there would be risk of flash flooding in the streams and nullahs of Punjab, upper K-P, eastern Balochistan and Kashmir during the next five days.


Rain-thundershowers are expected at scattered places in the twin cities.


He said that isolated heavy rainfall was also expected in Rawalpindi, Hazara division and Kashmir. The spokesperson said that a well marked seasonal low lied over northwest Balochistan and its adjoining areas with its trough extending south-eastward.


Strong monsoon currents are continuously penetrating southern parts of the country and moderate monsoon currents are penetrating in upper and central parts of the country and likely to continue in the coming days.
