Climate

fiogf49gjkf0d
PAKISTAN IS SUBJECT TO A CONTINENTAL CLIMATE, WITH A LARGE
VARIATION IN TEMPERATURES. ALONG THE COAST, THE CLIMATE IS
MODIFIED BY THE SEA BREEZES. IN THE REMAINDER OF THE COUNTRY
TEMPERATURES RISE STEEPLY IN THE SUMMER, WITH THE HOT LOO
WINDS BLOWING ACROSS THE PLAINS. THE TEMPERATURES ARE LOWERED
FREQUENTLY BY THESE WINDS, WHICH CAUSE DUST AND THUNDER STORMS.
ALTHOUGH PAKISTAN IS SITUATED IN A MONSOON REGION, IT IS DRY
EXCEPT IN THE HIMALAYAS WHICH HAVE A RAINFALL 760 TO 1280MM
A YEAR. DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS THE TEMPERATURES IN THE
PLAINS MAY REACH UP TO 45 DEGREES. MAY TO AUGUST ARE THE
HOTTEST MONTHS. THE MONSOON SEASON BEGINS IN JULY THROUGH
TO AUGUST WITH AN AVERAGE RAINFALL OF 500MM IN THE PLAINS TO
2000MM IN THE LOWER HIMALAYAS.

CLOTHING: DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS COTTON OR LIGHT WEIGHT
LINEN, WITH WARMER CLOTHING FOR VISITING THE NORTHERN AREA.
COCKTAIL DRESSES WILL BE REQUIRED FOR EVENING WEAR AND MEN
WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR A TIE. WOMEN SHOULD AVOID WEARING
SUN DRESSES OR MINISKIRTS IN THE. A RAINCOAT WOULD BE VERY
USEFUL DURING THE MONSOON MONTHS. NYLON CLOTHING MAY BE
VERY UNCOMFORTABLE DURING THE HOT MONTHS IN PAKISTAN. IN THE
WINTER LIGHT WOOLEN CLOTHING WOULD BE ADVISABLE IN THE
PLAINS, BUT WARMER WOOLEN GARMENTS SHOULD BE WORN IN HILLY
REGIONS.
