LAHORE, (UrduPoint News / Pakistan Point – 7th May, 2024) The provincial capital suffered scorching heat as the mercury soared to 40.5°C on Monday.

The rise in temperature affected the population, with reports of people fainting in various locations due to the hot weather. In addition, there has been a marked increase in activity at roadside stalls and shops selling juices and traditional drinks.

Furthermore, they predicted a gradual increase in daytime temperatures in the plains.
