I am living in Lahore, Pakistan. And the climate of Lahore features a hot semi-arid climate (Köppen climate classification BSh) with rainy, long and extremely hot summers, dry and warm winters, a monsoon and dust storms. The weather of Lahore is extreme during the months of May, June and July, when the temperatures soar to 40–48°C (104–118°F). From late June till August, the monsoon season starts, with heavy rainfall throughout the province. The city’s highest maximum temperature was 48. 3°C (118. 9°F) recorded on May 30, 1944. And 48°C (118°F) was recorded on June 9, 2007.  The lowest temperature recorded in Lahore is −2. 2°C (28. 0°F) recorded on 16/17 January 1935. The highest rainfall in the city recorded during 24 hours is 221 millimetres (8. 7 in), which occurred on 13 August 2008.
