‘Temperature will rise in Lahore’
LAHORE: Weather experts predict a gradual rise in the temperature in Lahore in the coming days.
A local met office official told APP on Sunday that the weather had been quite moderate during the first fortnight of May. He said that the unusual mild weather had nothing to do with the tsunami. “Weather follows a fixed pattern and does not change due to a tsunami. It has been a bit mild because of deeper incursions by the westerly wave which has brought clouds,” he said.
The official said that Lahore’s average temperature in May was 43.0 degree Celsius but so far the mercury had remained below 40.0 degrees. He said that May was the driest month of the year in Pakistan and Lahore received only 7.00mm of rain during the first 14 days of the month against an average of 22.4mm. Dry and hot weather has been forecast for most parts of the province, including Lahore division, during the next 24 hours. app
