India’s largest and most populated state of Uttar Pradesh is all set to get relief from the scorching heat. At present the weather conditions across the state are very hot, with most parts of state experiencing dry weather conditions. Temperatures are touching 40°C mark at places like Agra, Allahabad, Gorakhpur, Lucknow, and Bareilly.
At present, the maximum temperatures are marginally above normal average, making weather hot. According to the Skymet Weather, dry weather conditions are not going to last for long as pre-Monsoon rains and thundershowers are likely to commence over eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh from May 8. We expect rains to cover many more parts of Western and Central Uttar Pradesh by May 9.
Rains would remain to confide over northern parts of the state. Places like Bundelkhand, and the adjoining districts of Jhansi, Banda and Hamirpur will almost remain dry.
According to the Skymet Weather report, the reason for the commencement of these pre-Monsoon rains is the formation of the trough from Haryana to Bihar across Uttar Pradesh. Due to this, humid winds from the Bay of Bengal as well as south-westerly winds from the Arabian sea will increase the moisture over many parts of the state.
The increase in moisture will lead to cloud formation and subsequently thundershower activities. Temperatures are expected to fall marginally and start settling below normal.
These rains will be very beneficial for the upcoming Kharif crops, as the soil moisture will get restored.
