Karachi residents were pleasantly surprised by the sudden change in weather on Friday, when several areas of the city received light rain and moderate hail.

According to reports, a westerly wave brought light rain to Orangi, Surjani, New Karachi, North Karachi, Gulistan-e-Jauher, Gulshan-e-Maymar, and Port Qasim.

Rain clouds have formed in the city’s south-southeast, according to weather expert Jawad Memon.

Malir’s Model Colony residents also reported hail and heavy rain in the area.

What caused hailstones to form over Karachi?

According to Memon, thunderclouds formed at high altitudes under the westerly wind system. “Temperature at the upper level is very low at this time which turns raindrops into ice crystals,” he said.

Memon went on to say that the ice crystals grow so large and heavy that they fall as hailstones.
