The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has forecast severe rain beginning next week, bringing an end to Pakistan’s torrid weather and a sigh of relief from heatwave.

According to the latest PMD forecast, a new weather system will form across the country starting on Sunday, bringing rain from May 16 to May 18.
