The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) said that hailstorms and strong winds could harm standing crops and infrastructure, particularly in Barani areas. Nonetheless, the standing crops, especially in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Barani regions, would benefit from the rain.

During the expected period, landslides could occur in hilly regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan, Kashmir, Murree, and Galliyat. During the spell, the daytime temperature is expected to fall by 5 to 7°C.

In order to prevent any unfortunate incidents during the anticipated time, the PMD has recommended both concerned authorities and tourists to exercise caution during the spell.
