Rain Possible in Lahore This Week: Met Dept

The Meteorological Department predicts the possibility of rain in Lahore this week


Lahore is suffering under a severe heatwave, with temperatures predicted to reach 44 degrees Celsius on Monday. This intense heat has caused an increase in heatstroke cases and sparked civil protests over ongoing electricity load shedding.

In the last 24 hours, 43 cases of heatstroke have been reported in different hospitals throughout the city. Mayo Hospital has admitted eight patients, General Hospital has treated 25, and Ganga Ram Hospital has seen 10 cases.

Doctors are advising residents to stay inside, drink plenty of water, and avoid going out in the sun during the hottest parts of the day.

Adding to the city’s troubles, Lahore Electric Supply Company (LESCO) is grappling with a reduced supply-demand gap, causing five to six hours of load shedding across the city. This has led to civil protests as residents express their frustration over the prolonged power outages in the intense heat.

Despite the ongoing heatwave and power issues, there is a glimmer of hope as the Meteorological Department has forecast a chance of rain later this week, which could bring much-needed relief to the beleaguered residents of Lahore.

Meanwhile, relief is on the horizon for Karachi residents. The Met Department predicts a decrease in the intensity of heat this week. The current weather in Karachi is partly cloudy, with sea breezes providing much-needed respite.

Winds are blowing from the southwest at a speed of 22 kilometers per hour, helping to moderate Karachi’s temperature. Despite this, the maximum temperature is still expected to reach up to 36 degrees Celsius.

The Met Department has indicated that the weather will remain hot and humid over the next 24 hours. However, the restoration of sea breezes is expected to gradually ease the intense heat that has gripped the city in recent days.
