However, rains took a short break of 3-4 days before lashing the state of Uttar Pradesh again the last 24 hours. Though Bihar still remained almost dry and no showers were observed during the similar time frame.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Bareilly recorded 22 mm of rains, Bahraich 10 mm, Lucknow 9.4 mm and Agra recorded 3 mm of rainy spells.

As per Skymet Weather, a trough is passing through Central India which has given moderate showers over Uttar Pradesh. Due to this, rains occurred over parts of Uttar Pradesh which are likely to increase further.

As of now, a Western Disturbance is approaching Jammu & Kashmir and thus the rain intensity over parts of West Uttar Pradesh is likely to increase. Thus, the districts like Bareilly, Moradabad, Agra, Etah, and Firozabad will get to see good rains. Moreover, humid easterly winds are also incurring moisture over Uttar Pradesh.

Therefore, scattered rains are expected to continue over the western and central parts of the state till July 19. However, East Uttar Pradesh that includes districts such as Varanasi, Gorakhpur, Ballia, and Mau and also including adjoining Bihar will remain mostly dry with isolated rain in some pockets.

Thereafter, the trough is likely to gradually move towards north thus increasing rainfall activity over West Uttar Pradesh. Though, rains are expected to commence over East Uttar Pradesh and Bihar by July 20.

Hence forth, scattered rains will continue over many districts of the Uttar Pradesh. However, rain in Bihar will be more in the southern districts of the state in contrast with the foothills. Districts such as Araria, Supaul, and Kisanganj may see light rains.

As on July 16, East Uttar Pradesh is 11% rainfall surplus while the rainfall stats are normal for West Uttar Pradesh.
