Met officials said that continental air is prevailing over most parts of the country. A shallow westerly wave is present over northern parts of the country. They predicted that mainly hot and dry weather is expected in most parts of the country while very hot in central/southern Punjab, eastern Balochistan and Sindh. However, dust-thunderstorm/rain is expected at isolated places in Malakand, Hazara Divisions, Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir.
