MONSOON is likely to remain ACTIVE in Pakistan during next 7 days that would produce widespread rains with isolated heavy falls in different parts of the country during this period.

Widespread rain/thundershowers with isolated heavy falls expected in Punjab, Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa and Kashmir; scattered rain/thundershowers with isolated heavy falls expected in Sindh and Eastern parts of Balochistan during next 4/5 days. Heavy falls may cause urban/flash flooding in the said areas. The flooded areas of lower Sindh would receive more rains/thundershowers during the current week.

Due to frequent heavy falls in the catchment areas of eastern rivers of Pakistan, the water level may further rise in the Sutlej and Chenab rivers, generating low/medium level flooding in some of the areas, during the coming few days.
