The TC is expected to weaken further in next 24 hours and there is high probability of its dissipation over the water of north Arabian Sea in next couple of days. None of the area of Pakistan is under threat however some isolated rain/thundershowers expected in lower Sindh in next couple of days. The sea conditions along Pakistan coast are already rough to very rough. Therefore the fishermen of Sindh and Balochistan are advised not to venture in open sea from Friday evening to Sunday night.
