LAHORE: Light rain in the provincial capital and adjoining areas turned the weather cold, bringing the temperature down on Thursday.

The rain started in the afternoon and continued for more than an hour, bringing the maximum temperature down from 25 to 20 degrees Celsius in the city.

According to a spokesman of the Pakistan Meteorological Department, more rain, and possible thunderstorm, is expected at a few places in Rawalpindi and Gujranwala divisions during the next 24 hours.

Foggy conditions are likely to prevail at a few places in southern and central parts of Punjab during morning hours.

The spokesman said that smog in urban areas would likely subside due to rain and the fall in temperature.
