Cloud cover, winds and rains provided some respite to the Lahorites from the prevailing muggy weather. The rains, however, added to the woes and miseries of motorists and pedestrians as the rainwater inundated on portions of roads and roadsides. Inundated rainwater caused frequent traffic jams on a number of important arteries.
Clearing of sky after the rains and abundance of sunshine again turned the weather muggy, causing the Lahorites to sweat profusely. On Friday, the maximum and minimum temperature in the City was recorded at 36 and 27 degrees Celsius, respectively. Relative humidity in the evening was recorded 93 per cent.
According to the experts, a seasonal low lies over Balochistan with its trough extending eastwards, while monsoon currents are penetrating the upper and central parts of the country. The local meteorological department has forecast mainly hot and humid weather for most parts of the country. However, rains are expected at scattered places of northeast Punjab and Kashmir.
