A Moderate Dust-Storm is now affecting Pakistan. Reports coming from Pakistan especially Karachi indicate "Widespread dust"," Blowing Sand". Asad Ali from Karachi has sent the photo which you can see at the top. The photo is of evening period on 19th March 2012.
IT happens because of the jet streams. The jet streams after entering in the Arabian Sea move north-eastward towards India from regions over India-Pakistan border particularly Gujarat state.
IT can be seen in this Jet Stream map
Analysis of the present amounts of Dust-
RingRoad Weather Station's Weather Forecaster,Ashokbhai Patel reported today morning about the Hazy conditions in Gujarat. This news is a confirmed one as the Ahmedabad's weather station parameters confirm it.
Right now, conditions are much relaxed in the Gulf countries,Oman. However the satellite imagery shows some dust spread over Saudi Arabia southern end ( marked in red circle as DUST PLUMES)
The persisting winds shall be sending the dust more towards Sindh area and India especially Gujarat area.
I don't forsee any other parameter which can trigger another sandstorm in Gulf countries and Oman today
WIDESPREAD DUST,BLOWING SAND WILL CONTINUE IN PAKISTAN,GUJARAT FOR THE NEXT 24 HRS ATLEAST.
* WIDESPREAD VISIBILITY PROBLEMS POSSIBLE IN THESE REGIONS***
*** DRIVERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE CONDITIONS CAREFULLY***
THE OTHER STATES OF INDIA WILL NOT BE AFFECTED. HOWEVER SOME DUST MAY REACH PARTS OF NORTH INDIA
