Dense fog in the early hours of Wednesday has forced the closure of portions of the Motorway from Lahore to Abdul Hakeem (M3) and from Pindi Bhatian to Gojra (M4) for motorists.

According to the reports, the two motorway sections have been closed as visibility over National Highway was only from 10 to 50 meters.

Commuters have been advised to use the GT Road with fog lights instead, or call the Motorway Police helpline 130 before traveling on the motorway.

Pakistan Weather Update:

Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has predicted cold and dry weather in Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan, upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, North Balochistan and other parts of the country during the next twelve hours.

Dense fog is likely to engulf parts of upper Sindh.

The temperature of some major cities recorded this morning:

Islamabad and Muzaffarabad 2 degree centigrade, Lahore 5, Karachi 10, Peshawar 4, Quetta and Gilgit -6, and Murree 0 degree centigrade.

It was reported on Tuesday that the cold wave will prevail in Karachi this week with minimum temperatures between six degrees centigrade to eight degrees centigrade.
