Monsoon system over KP, Gilgit-Baltistan weakening

ISLAMABAD: The monsoon system, which generated torrential rains in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan and north Punjab in league with a strong westerly wave, weakened on Friday evening, but the rainwater swelled the rivers Indus and Jhelum to dangerous levels.

The Met office reported development of another monsoon low pressure over the Bay of Bengal and said it could cause more rain by August 4 if it moved to this region. “It is premature to say it will move to Pakistan. But even if it comes here, it is not likely to cause flood generating rain,” said chief meteorologist Hazrat Mir.
