ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) released a climate outlook for December this year, stating that a rain spell is expected to start tomorrow and continue for two days.
According to the climate outlook report released on Friday, a few episodes of rainfall is expected in Quetta, Ziarat, Pishin, Zhob and surrounding areas while heavy rain and snow is expected in Kashmir, Chitral, Dir, Swat, Malakand, Buner, Mansehra and Abbottabad on Sunday.
Other parts of the country, such as Haripur, Swabi, Mardan, Nowshera, Peshawar, Charsadda, Waziristan, Kohat and Islamabad expect a few spells of heavy to moderate rain during the last month of the year.
However, on coming Sunday snowfall is expected at Neelam, Rawalkot, Bagh, Nathia Gali, Galyat, Hunza, Gilgit-Baltistan, Chitral and Malam Jabba.
Smog and fog continue to engulf many cities across the country. The intense air pollution crisis intensifies, particularly in the winter season when the burning of agricultural biomass residue correlates with cooler temperatures that confine toxic smoke.
The Punjab government has announced to take strict action against those who do not abide by steps taken by the government to curb smog.
