The increase in sea surface temperature trends in the Arabian sea and Indian ocean is obvious during the last decade. This year, the northern Arabian Sea was up to 2-3°C warmer than usual in August. This makes the air above warmer, humid and unstable. This causes a huge amount of moisture to be available along with the coastal areas of Pakistan. This moisture further coupled with the low-pressure areas of the Bay of Bengal and the western disturbances, and that triggered the heavy precipitation in coastal and other regions of Pakistan
