Heavy rain was reported in multiple parts of Karachi such as I.I. Chundrigar Road, Saddar, Clifton, Defence, Orangi Town, and Garden Wednesday afternoon.

The spell continued in the evening and light rain was reported in PECHS, Quaidabad, Gulshan-e-Hadeed, and Saddar.

After the afternoon rains, a tree fell at the Pakistan Chowk, and a pole collapsed near the Shaheen Complex. A signboard also collapsed near Zainab Market because of strong winds.

A traffic jam was reported on Ziauddin Road, and near the Arts Council.

The PMD had predicted rain in Karachi on July 15 which would continue throughout the week. After the showers, the intense humid weather in the city turned pleasant.

On Wednesday, the highest temperature recorded in the city was 38°C, while humidity in the air was 44%.

Karachi received the first spell of monsoon rains on July 12. Amateur meteorologist Jawad Memon said that the low-pressure system in the Bay of Bengal will move towards Pakistan from about July 14/15. It will be a move towards Sindh, the Arabian Sea, and then, after the 15th the intensity of rain is expected to go up.

There was heavy rain in Punjab, especially Lahore. Upper Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will more likely see heavy rainfall. It has happened in Murree and Abbottabad already.

    Kindly ensure that your anchors as well as news correspondents learn to pronounce the word monsoon correctly. The word is not moon soon as pronounced by your team and all other channels it is “Morn” as in morning but without the ‘r’. So it’s Mon soon please rectify this as we have already broken the legs of measurement by pronouncing it as myerment and deputy as dipty government as gorment.
