The state of Uttar Pradesh is divided into two sub-divisions West Uttar Pradesh and East Uttar Pradesh. However, due to its broad extent, both the regions tend to witness diverse weather conditions. Unlike the Monsoon season, which is more active in East Uttar Pradesh, during the pre-Monsoon season both the sub-divisions witness the same amount of weather activities, leading to almost equal rainfall distribution.
Talking about the previous pre-Monsoon months, March ended with a large deficiency for both West and East Uttar Pradesh. And following a similar trend, April also ended on a deficient note for East Uttar Pradesh, while marginal recovery was observed in West Uttar Pradesh.
In the month May too, both the sub-divisions are suffering from large deficiency so far. East Uttar Pradesh has recorded 1.8 mm of rain against its actual of 10 mm, followed by West Uttar Pradesh that has received 4.5 mm of rain against its actual of 8. 3 mm.
Since the last one week, most parts of Uttar Pradesh (barring few western districts) are experiencing dry and hot weather conditions with maximum temperatures settling around 40˚C.
But today we expect isolated pre-Monsoon weather activities in the form of dust storm and thunderstorm to commence over western parts of Uttar Pradesh including places like Noida, Ghaziabad, Agra, Mathura, Aligarh, Meerut, Muzaffarnagar during late evening hours.
By tomorrow i.e. on May 22, these weather activities will pick up pace and most parts of Uttar Pradesh will be witnessing scattered dust storm and thunderstorm activities accompanied with strong winds mainly towards the latter half of the day.
As the chances of rainfall activity are very less during the day, weather conditions will remain hot and windy with temperatures in West Uttar Pradesh settling around 40 degree Celsius and in East Uttar Pradesh around 42 degree Celsius.
These weather activities will take places in association with a cyclonic circulation present over parts of Bihar and a trough passing across the foothills of Uttar Pradesh.
