According to the forecast, significant to extremely heavy rainfall is anticipated in the fourth week of July, with isolated areas of the Mardan, Malakand, and Hazara Divisions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa projected to receive rain in the third week of July.

It further stated that there will be isolated areas of 15–50 mm of rainfall in the first and second weeks of July in the districts of Lahore, Sargodha, Faisalabad, and Gujranwala in Punjab, as well as in the capital territory of Islamabad. The fourth week will likely bring potential flooding in the areas of ICT, Rawalpindi, Lahore, Sargodha, Gujranwala, and Faisalabad, hill torrents in DG Khan, and moderate to heavy rainfall in Sahiwal, Multan, and Bahawalpur.

According to the projection, heavy to very heavy rainfall is expected in the fourth week of July in the Astore District of Gilgit Baltistan and isolated areas of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJ&K), with the possibility of catastrophic flooding in rivers and nullahs. Rainfall ranging from moderate to extremely heavy might result in landslides in mountainous regions, urban flooding, flash flooding, and possible GLOF events.
