The highest temperature 31°C was observed in 2011 and now in 2021 seems like history is repeating itself. The lowest temperature was 2°C during 2012. This year the highest temperature has raised to 8 Celsius degrees from the past two years. The duration of spring in the country has shrunken probably due to changes in weather conditions.

Environmental Pollution in Lahore

Urbanization and transportation in the city are increasing environmental pollution. Lahore is considered the most polluted city in Pakistan and in the World. The atmospheric pollution increases during the start of winter and smog stay in the city throughout the winters unless there is precipitation. This matter has been taken into consideration by the Government of Punjab and begun the tree plantation throughout the city.

There are no apparent changes in the average temperature values of Lahore in a decade except the highest temperatures. However, the whole country is showing vulnerability to extreme weather events. Tree plantation projects could help lessen the impacts of fluctuating temperature.
