The drought-stricken southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan will see more days with no or negligible rainfall during the upcoming water year (starts September 23), head of the weather forecast team at the province’s Meteorology Office said.  
Unfortunately, the province has received merely 29.4 millimeters of rain since the beginning of the current water year (September 23, 2017), which marks a 74% fall compared with its long-term average, IRNA quoted Ali Mollashahi as saying.
“The sharp drop in precipitation this year has rendered the province the driest area in the country. This should be a warning for relevant authorities to think of an efficient strategy for the coming water year,” he added. 
The province is also the second driest in the long-term period after the central province of Yazd.
