Flooding to worsen as more heavy Monsoon rains to lash Lucknow, Bareilly, Kanpur and Bahraich

July 12, 2019 9:42 AM |

Monsoon rains

The foothills of Uttar Pradesh like Bahraich and Gorakhpur, along with Lucknow, Bareilly and Kanpur have been observing heavy to very heavy rains for the last many days. In the last 24 hours, the intensity has increased further and more heavy Monsoon showers are likely to lash these areas for the next three to four days. The heavy downpour has already created a flood-like situation in many parts of the state.

In the last 24 hours, from 8:30 am on Thursday, Lucknow has recorded 121.6 mm of rainfall, followed by Bareilly 112 mm, Bahraich 105.2 mm, Fursatganj 99.8 mm, Varanasi 89.4 mm and Prayagraj 59.4 mm of rainfall.

The Low-Pressure Area over the northern parts of East Uttar Pradesh and adjoining Bihar has resulted in heavy rains in Uttar Pradesh. The system is likely to move further and shift northwards. The seasonal Trough is also expected to move closer to the foothills of the Himalayas, which will lead to an increase in rainfall activity over the foothills of Uttar Pradesh as well as Bihar.

In the wake of these systems, places lying along the foothills like Bahraich, Balrampur, Lakhimpur Kheri, Gorakhpur, Gonda, Deoria and Kushinagar will observe flooding rains until July 15. Some other places like Rampur, Lucknow, Bareilly and Kanpur, which are not in the foothills will also witness good amounts of rain. Chances of some serious flooding cannot be ruled out, during this period.

However, the southern parts of Northwest Uttar Pradesh, particularly, Jhansi, Agra, Aligarh and Mathura will escape this danger and continue to experience dry weather only.

Meanwhile, the intensity of rain will remain light to moderate over the eastern parts such as Prayagraj, Varanasi, and Sultanpur.

July 16 onwards, the Trough will start moving in southwards initiating rain and thundershower activities over the southern districts of the state. These thundershowers will continue until July 17 or 18.
