A view of Monday’s trip, motorists encouraged to stay off the roads | RiverBender.com.
Talk about a wonderful day here in Spokane! Hope you were able to go out and enjoy the beautiful temperatures and the sun. Overnight tonight we will continue to search for cloud cover to move before our next system. Temperatures are expected to dip to around zero this evening. Tomorrow it will be a matter of timing and temperatures with the next system underway. We will have the chance to see rain and snow. It starts to be felt overnight. It mostly looks like rain to us, but early in the morning we could start with a rain / snow mix. When we don’t see any raindrops, we expect mostly cloudy skies. This system has the national meteorological service which sets up winter watches, warnings and warnings. The rising winds also leave us with concerns, especially in central Washington. Strong wind warnings and wind advisories are in place for this reason. The winds combined with the mountain snow will make crossing the passes difficult for tomorrow. Please make sure both hands are on the steering wheel! There are even avalanche warnings in place for northern Idaho in Montana. This means that it is not advisable to travel to the hinterland. .
The minimum temperature in the city on Monday morning fell to 08 º Celsius as northeastern Siberian winds blow across the city, Karachi will experience cold and dry weather in the next 24 hours, while humidity is recorded at 21 percent in the morning.
The Pakistan Meteorological Department reported in its report that wind speeds had been recorded at between 10 and 12 kilometers per hour in Karachi. The maximum temperature can increase during the day to 27 degrees Celsius.
Visibility limits up to four kilometers in the city.
Winter in the city will continue for another two days, the weather report said.

Most of the rain that starts at 7am Monday will be the biggest on the West Coast of the South Island. Image / weatherwatch.co.nz
A storm that is likely to bring destructive winds and swells is centered on New Zealand’s West Coast, prompting warnings for those camping, on foot or on the water.
Weatherwatch.co.nz estimates strong winds “damaging” more than 150 km / h, waves of up to 13 meters, and one meter of snow in the Southern Alps.
There may also be over 200 mm of rain for parts of the West Coast.
Police say they have not issued a specific warning for the storm, but they always urge motorists to drive according to the conditions.
“In wet and windy weather that means slowing down and increasing the distance to follow,” said a spokesman.
Philip Duncan at weatherwatch.co.nz said the storm would be significant.
“The stormy Southern Ocean weather pattern is temporarily putting the La Nina pattern to one side with two significant lows – one today and the other around Tuesday, Wednesday.
“Sunday’s low, which still hasn’t suppressed some thunderstorms, rain and winds for parts of New Zealand, will actually be tracing out of the country today. So we don’t expect anything too serious today, although it remains up-to-date with possible MetService severe warning no matter where you are. “
But the ensuing storm worries Duncan, especially for those venturing outdoors.
“The Tuesday / Wednesday event appears to be the most intense with the epicenter of this hurricane potentially crossing Southland and Otago.”
As a hurricane hits the country with its strong northwest strong winds, it will then be followed by a cool southern turn with heavy rains that will hit the West Coast.
Auckland is expected to cool down but will not experience as violent a storm as the South Island one.
MetService meteorologist Peter Little said southwestern changes that begin on Wednesday through Thursday will bring temperatures down to 10C on the South Island.
Dunedin will drop from 25C today to 15C.
Few say that temperature changes won’t be as dramatic as on the North Island, but people will definitely feel the impact from the southwest.
Auckland will drop from 27C today to 21C on Wednesday, and 20C on Thursday.
Until then, the hot weather will continue. Whangārei and Gisborne can expect temperatures of 30C, Auckland and Tauranga 27C and Hamilton 26C.
In today’s South Island, Kaikoura is a hot spot of 28C. Christchurch and Ashburton are set at 27C.
The front exerts its energies on the South Island, and central New Zealand – Wellington, Wairarapa – is bearing the brunt of strong winds. Bad weather warning has been issued.
Meanwhile, warnings were in place tonight for the Canterbury Plains and North Otago, where it is expected to see more than 25 mm of rain, along with hail.
MetService has warned people to be prepared for flash floods around low-lying areas such as rivers, streams or narrow valleys, which can cause slipping.
Driving conditions will also be dangerous, with surface flooding and poor visibility during heavy rain.
Heavy hail can cause significant damage to crops, orchards, vines, greenhouses and vehicles.
