The way we experience weather isn’t all about temperature. Higher temperatures affect us much more at higher humidity, and colder temperatures feel piercing with high winds. Our perceived temperatures factor in humidity and wind chill to better represent how hot or cold the day feels to a person.

If dry weather is what you’re after, the months with the lowest chance of significant precipitation in Pakistan are December, November, and then October. Note that we define “significant precipitation” as .1 inches or more in this section. The lowest chance of rain or snow occurs around late November to early December. For example, on the week of November 26th there are no days of precipitation on average. By contrast, it’s most likely to rain or snow in late July with an average of 1 days of significant precipitation the week of July 23rd.

When can you find snow in Pakistan? Weather stations report a good amount of seasonal snow likely to be deepest around February, especially close to late February and early March. The best time to ski (if at all) in Pakistan is often around around February 5th when fresh powder is deepest. Please note that a value of 0 for snow in the graph below may either mean there was no snow, or that snow is unreported.
