The city of Lucknow has seen some heavy rains in the last couple of days with rainfall crossing a century on two consecutive days, yesterday at 107 mm and in the last 24 hours at 128 mm. These rains were seen over many parts of the state but it was the capital city where it rained rather heavily.
Moreover, these kinds of rains are not a regular affair in the month of September, and happened to be a very rare event. 100 mm of rains in 24 hours’ time during the month of September has occurred only once in the last ten years, which was on September 14, 2012.
Not only this, Lucknow has also surpassed the record of highest monthly rainfall in a decade with a few days still left in hand. The last record was 286 mm and this time, 297 mm of rains have already been witnessed against a monthly average of 205 mm.
As per weathermen, the city is expected to see some rains in the coming two to three days while these showers may not be as heavy as the past couple of days but moderate rainfall activity is expected over the capital city of Uttar Pradesh.
