Active Monsoon to give flooding rains in UP, intense rains in Agra, Varanasi, Bareilly, Lucknow, Prayagraj

July 9, 2019 12:16 PM |

Rain in UP

Monsoon has become active over Uttar Pradesh, bringing moderate to heavy rains with few extremely heavy spells over parts of the state. Agra has recorded 3-digit rainfall to the tune 125 mm in span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday. Places like Bahraich, Gorakhpur and Bareilly have recorded 70 mm, 65 mm and 62 mm of rains, respectively.

This is not all, dense cloud cover can be seen over many parts of the state, particularly over eastern parts such as Gorakhpur and Faizabad. As per weathermen, a Low-Pressure Area is marked over East Uttar Pradesh and adjoining Bihar, which is infusing a fresh and strong Monsoon surge over Uttar Pradesh.

We expect this Low-Pressure Area to intensify further and move in a northwest direction towards the central parts of the state. Hence, we can say that good rains would continue over many parts of Uttar Pradesh for the next 24 to 48 hours.

Weather Alert: Light to moderate rain and thundershowers, with some with heavy showers and lightning strikes are likely over Agra, Aligarh, Prayagraj, Ambedkar Nagar, Amethi, Auraiya, Azamgarh, Badaun, Baghpat, Bahraich, Ballia, Balrampur, Banda, Bara Banki, Bareilly, Basti, Bijnor, Bulandshahr, Chandauli, Chitrakoot, Deoria, Etah, Etawah, Faizabad, Farrukhabad, Fatehpur, Firozabad, Gautam Buddha Nagar, Ghaziabad, Ghazipur, Gonda, Gorakhpur, Hamirpur, Hapur, Hardoi, Jalaun, Jaunpur, Jhansi, Jyotiba Phule Nagar, Kannauj, Kanpur Dehat, Kanpur Nagar, Kanshiram Nagar, Kaushambi, Kheri, Kushinagar, Lucknow, Mahamaya Nagar, Mahoba, Mahrajganj, Mainpuri, Mau, Meerut, Mirzapur, Moradabad, Muzaffarnagar, Pilibhit, Pratapgarh, Rae Bareli, Rampur, Saharanpur, Sambhal, Sant Kabir Nagar, Sant Ravidas Nagar (Bhadohi), Shahjahanpur, Shamli, Shrawasti, Siddharthnagar, Sitapur, Sonbhadra, Sultanpur, Unnao and Varanasi during the next 24 hours.

The intensity of rains will be more over the eastern and central parts. Places like Gorakhpur, Bahraich, Lucknow, Bareilly, Kanpur, Sultanpur, Varanasi, Prayagraj and Fursatganj will be at higher risk of flooding rains.

Flooding rains ahead for Uttar Pradesh

Besides this low pressure, the Trough which is presently extending from Punjab to Northeast India across Uttar Pradesh will start also shifting to north. With two major Monsoon systems in offing, these rain activities are likely to take vigorous turn, bringing heavy to very heavy rains over the foothills of Uttar Pradesh between July 11 and July 14.

These rains are likely to trigger flood like situation over the northern districts such as Rampur, Bahraich, Lakhimpur Kheri, Gorakhpur, Balrampur, and Barabanki. This week seems to be the rainiest one for the state of Uttar Pradesh.

At present, East Uttar Pradesh is deficit by 38% and West Uttar Pradesh by 34%. As these rain activities will gain momentum, the deficiency levels will be pulled down and might come under the normal category.
