The climate of Lahore (Pakistan)
Lahore is a large city located in the north-eastern part bordering India. Lahore is the second largest city in Pakistan with a population of more than 10 million in the entire administrative region; the city itself has a population of more than 5 million. Because Lahore is situated on the banks of the Ravi River it has always been an important and popular city and was conquered by many peoples and kingdoms throughout history. Lahore is situated in the province of Punjab of which it also is the capital. The old historic center is known as the Walled City of Lahore and is almost entirely in its original state. The many richly decorated gates in this wall are well worth visiting. Within the walled city the tomb of Malik Ayaz can be found. He was a slave who became king of Lahore because of his loyalty and dedication. Lahore has a warm steppe climate. Summers are hot and wet. However, because of the precipitation figures the heat is somewhat tempered during the hottest months of the year. The combination of high precipitation figures and high temperatures also causes humidity figures to be high. Winters are cool to cold. However, extreme cold is uncommon, the coldest temperature on record is -1.1 degrees Celsius. In February 2011 the first ever hail storms was recorded. Because of high precipitation figures in July and August Lahore can be said to have a monsoon period. More than 200 millimeters of rain may fall in a single day. Please, bear in mind that there is a risk of sudden dust storms.
