ISLAMABAD: The upcoming twelve hours promise a blend of hot and humid conditions across most regions of the country.

However, a shift in the weather pattern is expected in several areas, including upper Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Islamabad, Kashmir, and Gilgit-Baltistan, where a mix of rain, wind, and thundershowers is on the horizon.

As the sun rises, temperature readings in key cities provide insights into the expected climatic conditions for the day. The capital city, Islamabad, and the bustling city of Peshawar both start the day at a comfortable twenty-five degrees Celsius. Moving towards the eastern side, Lahore and Karachi share a slightly warmer temperature of twenty-eight degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, the city of Quetta, known for its cool evenings, begins at a refreshing twenty-two degrees Celsius. In scenic Gilgit, the thermometer records eighteen degrees Celsius, while the hill station of Murree boasts a pleasant seventeen degrees Celsius. Finally, Muzaffarabad, located at the confluence of rivers, starts its day at twenty-four degrees Celsius.

Shifting our attention to the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir region, the meteorological outlook is equally intriguing. The Met Office predicts partly cloudy conditions with potential rain, wind, and thundershowers in the cities of Srinagar, Pulwama, Anantnag, Shopian, and Baramula. As the clouds gather, residents might experience nature’s symphony. Further south in Jammu and Leh, the forecast points towards cloudy skies accompanied by the possibility of rain, wind, and thundershowers.

Temperature gauges reflect the morning chill in these regions. Srinagar, Pulwama, Anantnag, and Baramula wake up to a comfortable eighteen degrees Celsius. In the bustling city of Jammu, the thermometer reads twenty-four degrees Celsius, hinting at a relatively warmer day. The high-altitude town of Leh greets its residents with a brisk eleven degrees Celsius, while Shopian experiences a milder morning at seventeen degrees Celsius.
