LAHORE – The City received downpour on the second consecutive day on Sunday, submerging roads and streets into knee-deep water.

Early morning rains, however, did not create problems as inundated rainwater was cleared before Lahorites coming out of their houses for routine work on a holiday. Clearance of sky and abundance of sunshine after the stoppage of rain again turned the weather muggy, causing Lahorites to sweat profusely throughout the day.

People thronged parks and picnic spots in the City after Iftar to enjoy post rain conditions. Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Jillani Park, Bagh-e-Jinnah, Jallo Park, Lahore Zoo and other picnic spots attracted a large number of people including women and children.

Experts have forecast partly cloudy weather with chances of more rains for the City during the next 24 hours. Scattered thunderstorm / rain is expected over lower Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan. Isolated thunderstorm /rain is also expected over upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Upper Sindh and Balochistan.  

Maximum temperature in the City was recorded 31.5 degrees celsius and minimum 21.2 degrees celsius with relative humidity at 95 per cent in the morning and 60 per cent in the evening. 

The maximum rain was received by Gujranwala (123mm), followed by Lahore City (110mm), Lahore Airport (96mm), Chakwal (97mm), Sialkot Airport (79mm), Mandi Bahauddin (70mm), Jhelum (67mm), Kotli (45mm), Dera Ismail Khan (49mm), Sialkot City (38mm), Rawalakot (26mm), Bhakkar (21mm), Noorpur Thal (17mm), Drosh (15mm), Garidupatta and Zhob (12mm), Dir and Islamabad (11mm) and Astore (10mm) in the last 24 hours.
