Weather Updates PK, a real-time weather update portal, has predicted a record-breaking prolonged winter season in Pakistan due to La-Nina and other meteorological factors.
La-Nina is a complex weather pattern that occurs every few years, as a result of variations in ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific.
According to an advisory issued by the Weather Updates PK, La-Nina, when occurring during the winter season, can result in prolonged winters along with below normal temperatures.
La-Nina coupled with the ongoing solar minimum, a period during which solar activity on the sun’s surface reduces dramatically, is expected to result in record-breaking events from Karachi to Khyber.
Most parts of Pakistan will experience below-normal temperatures as well as increased rainfall in the coming winter season.
Moreover, Pakistan’s northern and western regions are expected to receive unprecedented snowfall this year.
Weather Updates PK will later issue a detailed outlook on Pakistan’s weather during the 2020-2021 winter season.
