potential impact

  • Temperatures are expected to drop gradually during the forecast season.
  • Dry conditions early in the season are favorable for harvesting halif crops in the country. However, rabbi plants, especially wheat, need to be watered regularly to grow healthier in the early/vegetative stage.
  • Dry conditions adversely affect the Air Quality Index in urban areas of the country (southern and central Punjab).
  • Dusty winds will also rage in southern Punjab and northern Sindh.
