A Low-Pressure Area is still persistent over South Uttar Pradesh and adjoining areas. It has now weakened and moreover, the Axis of Monsoon Trough passes through Firozpur, Baghpat, Etawah, Sidhi, Daltonganj, Malda and thence eastwards to Nagaland across Bangladesh and Assam and Meghalaya.
These weather systems will give moderate rains with isolated heavy spells over east and central Uttar Pradesh and over parts of Bihar. As per the experts, the rain activities over Bihar will subside by tomorrow, that is September 18, but Uttar Pradesh will continue to receive moderate to heavy rains on September 18 also.
The strong easterly winds are giving heavy rains over Nepal and will continue to do so until September 18.
