It was an unusual night for Karachi as suddenly the sky covered with clouds that exploded with thunder and lightning to pour down. Intermittent showers intensified cold in the port city.
As usual, soon after the first drop of rain fell down, power breakdowns were reported in many parts of the provincial capital.
The rain of the season for the metropolis began in I. I. Chundrigar Road, Shara-e-Faisal, Malir, New Karachi , North Krachi, Liaqatabad, Federal B Area, Kharadar, Saddar, North Nazimabad and adjoining areas which turned the weather chillier, dampening the roads causing those commuting on motorcycles to slip. Rain caused slushy mess and puddles on roads due to poor drainage to the misery of motorists and commuters.
Meanwhile, the meteorological office has forecast more rain, saying intermittent rainfall will continue till Monday night, adding that the weather in the city on Monday would be partly cloudy and the minimum temperature would range between 10 and 15 degrees Celsius.
A cold wave rolled in across Pakistan again on Sunday morning as it snowed in several areas while it rained in other regions.
