According to the weatherman, a potent low-pressure region over central India is forecast to move toward Sindh today and might bring back moderate to heavy rain and thunderstorms for the majority of Sindh’s districts between August 23 and 25.
During the 24–25th of August, he added, “Rain-thunderstorm with a few moderate/heavy falls is also likely in Karachi.”

It further stated that the wet spell would affect Balochistan’s northeastern and southern districts from August 23 to 26.
This could result in flash flooding in the districts of Dadu, Jamshoro, Kambar Shahdadkot, and downstream.
During the forecast period, the heavy rains may cause more urban flooding and water logging in the districts of Umerkot, Mirpur Khas, Badin, Thatta, Sujawal Sukkur, Larkana, Jacobabad, Shaheed Benazirabad, Ghotki, Shikarpur, Noshero Feroze, Kambar Shahdadkot, Karachi, Hyderabad, Tando Muhammad Khan, and Tando Allayar.
