It said that these weather conditions may prevail in Abbottabad, Mansehra, Battagram, Kohistan, Torghar, Haripur, Buner, Shangla, Swat, Malakand, Lower & Upper Dir, Chitral, Bajaur, Khyber, Peshawar, Charsadda, Nowshera, Mardan, Swabi, Mohmand, Kohat, Hangu, Kurram and Orakzai districts.

Scattered rain-thundershower with isolated heavy falls and strong wind is also expected in Tank, D.I.Khan, North & South Waziristan, Bannu, Lakki Marwat, and Karak districts during the next 24 hours. The heavy rains may also cause flash flooding in local nullahs and hill torrents in the province.—APP
