LAHORE: Parts of the country received rainfall of varying intensities on Tuesday, providing some respite to the people from the prevailing muggy weather. The respite, however, was short lived as abundance of sunshine after the stoppage of rains and high humidity again turned the weather muggy, causing people in plains to sweat profusely.

Experts have predicted more rains with intervals during the next couple of days.  Scattered rain-thundershower occurred in Kashmir, Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Lahore, Peshawar, Malakand, Hazara, Kohat and Kallat divisions.

Nokkundi and Dalbandin remained hottest places in the country where mercury rose as high as 47 degree Celsius.

On Tuesday, maximum and minimum temperature in the City was recorded 37 C and 25 C respectively. Relative humidity in the evening was recorded 63 percent.

According to the experts, a well marked seasonal low lies over Northwest Balochistan and adjoining areas. Monsoon currents are penetrating into upper and central parts of the country. Local meteorological department has forecast rain-thundershower at scattered places of Kashmir, upper Khyber PK (Malakand, Hazara and Peshawar division), Islamabad, Upper Punjab (Rawalpindi, Gujranwala, Lahore, Sargodha divisions) and at places of Faisalabad, Kohat, Bannu, D I Khan, Zhob, Kalat, Sibbi and Mirpur Khas division during the next couple of days.–Staff Reporter
