The weatherman said dust-thunderstorm and rainfall along with gusty winds would happen in scattered places of northeast Balochistan areas including Quetta, Kalat, Zhob, Nasirabad and Sibbi, Upper Punjab's Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Sargodha, Faisalabad and Lahore divisions, and Islamabad from Tuesday to Thursday, in central and southern Punjab areas of Multan, D.G.
