Lahore Anticipates More Rainfall After Overnight Improvement

Scattered rainfall in Lahore and parts of Punjab during the early hours has brought a welcome relief, dispelling thick fog and cooling the weather. This precipitation, breaking the prolonged dry spell, has had a positive impact on the provincial capital, with areas like Mall Road, Jail Road, Model Town, Gulberg, Garden Town, and Gulshan Ravi experiencing rain.

The Meteorological Office anticipates more rainfall in the region over the next 24 hours, contributing to the alleviation of dry conditions. As of noon on Thursday, Lahore recorded a temperature of 13°C, and the humidity level exceeded 85% after the showers.

The rain has not only influenced the temperature but has also had a positive effect on Lahore’s air quality. The Air Quality Index (AQI) for Lahore was measured at 75 on Thursday, reflecting an improvement as the rain helped clear toxic pollutants from the atmosphere.

Looking at the broader weather outlook for Pakistan, the cold weather is expected to persist over the plain areas of Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, upper Sindh, and Islamabad. However, fog and smog are likely to persist in the plain areas of Punjab, creating visibility challenges.

This shift in weather conditions is significant, considering the recent dry spell and the associated challenges, such as poor air quality and increased vulnerability to fog-related incidents. The rain comes as a relief for residents and serves to mitigate some of the adverse effects of the prolonged dry weather. The ongoing monitoring by the Meteorological Office provides valuable insights into the changing weather patterns, helping the public and authorities to stay informed and prepared for possible fluctuations in the climate.
