Pakistan – Record snowfall this winter

Unusually long winter, more snow expected

In an interview with BBC Urdu, chief meteorologist of the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) Khalid Malik on Wednesday said, “This winter, 50 per cent more snow has been recorded as compared to the previous years. By the end of the winter in March, as much as 50 inches of snow would have fallen.”

He added, “More than 25 to 30 per cent rain has been recorded this winter in various parts of the country, due to which the Tarbela and Mangla dams level are also more than normal.”

Moreover, temperatures as low as 3°C in Khuzdar and Zhob, 4°C in Kalat, 11°C in Panjgor and 15°C in Gawadar and Turbat were recorded.
