It said that hot and humid weather is expected in most parts of the country tomorrow, the PMD said. However, rain/thundershower is likely to hit Kashmir, Islamabad, Pothohar region, northeast/east Punjab, upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Gilgit-Baltistan on Sunday.

The met office said that heavy falls may also occur at a few places in upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pothohar region, northeast Punjab and Kashmir during the forecast period.

Islamabad and Muzafarabad 24°C, Lahore 26°C, Karachi 29°C, Peshawar 28°C, Quetta 25°C, Gilgit twenty and Murree 17°C.

Earlier, the PMD had warned that heavy rains may cause urban flooding in low-lying areas of Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Gujranwala, and Lahore, from August 4 to 7 and may trigger landslides in the vulnerable areas of Murree, Galliyat, Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan and hilly areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa during the wet spell.
