Quetta : After a long break, winter season has returned to several parts of the country.
Temperature in parts of Balochistan dropped to freezing point forcing people to stay indoors. At least two people lost their lives in the province because of the chilly weather. Quetta, Ziarat and Kalat remain the most affected cities as the temperature dropped to -12 in Kalat and Ziarat, and to -10 in Quetta.
According to officials of the meteorological department, the recent freezing wave will continue over the next few days and the weather will become more dry and cold.
The officials also confirmed that many parts of Balochistan including Quetta will also experience snowfall in the next few days. However, low pressure of gas has been leaving people exasperated in the province, forcing them to use gas cylinders and wood to keep themselves warm.
