Cold Day Conditions In PakistanFor last couple of days, Central Pakistan region has been witnessing dense and widespread fog.  In the cities of Sargodha, Dera Ismail Khan, and Lahore, fog has been persisting due to which day temperatures are below normal. This is because the fog cover prevents sunlight from reaching the surface thereby allowing cold day conditions to prevail. Cold day conditions are said to exist when the current maximum temperature is 16°C or less and the difference between the normal maximum temperature and the current maximum temperature is 5°C or more.

Cold day conditions currently prevail in several parts of Pakistan with maximums dipping way below normal. The cities of Sialkot, Lahore, Faisalabad, and others have been affected by drop in temperatures. Meanwhile, fog was also witnessed in several parts of the country.
