Pakistan weather overview

Pakistan has mountains on its northern and western borders, a vast area of low-lying plain and a climate which varies from region to region. The monsoon rains bring cloudy, muggy weather from late June to October and are followed by a period of bright, sunny days and cold to freezing nights until late February. Then temperatures soar and conditions grow unpleasantly hot and dusty until the next arrival of the rains.

From March to June, fierce thunderstorms can occur, often exacerbated by accompanying dust storms. The rains are much less intense in the desert region, which lies to the south, while the Arabian Sea coast experiences little summer rainfall but endures high humidity.

What to pack for Pakistan weather

Light clothing with head covers for the desert region is essential. Take warmer clothing for protection against the cold winter nights and much heavier attire if you are travelling into the mountains.
