Uttar Pradesh rains

With the late arrival of Southwest Monsoon, several parts of Uttar Pradesh recorded moderate to heavy rains, with very heavy spells on few instances.

During the last 24 hours, Monsoon remained active over the region, giving good rain and thundershowers particularly over eastern districts.


In a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Friday, Bareilly recorded 47 mm of heavy rainfall. Other areas recorded light showers such as Hardoi 8 mm, Jhansi 4 mm, Bahraich 3 mm, Kanpur 2 mm and Allahabad 1 mm.

These showers can be attributed to a low pressure area that is seen over East Uttar Pradesh and adjoining parts of Bihar. Moreover, a cyclonic circulation is marked over the area and a trough is also extending from this system with its one arm reaching Northeast Bay of Bengal and another up to Assam.

As per Skymet Weather, these systems will keep the weather conditions favorable for more rain and thundershowers over Uttar Pradesh for another 48 hours.

Currently, West Uttar Pradesh is rain surplus by 43% and East Uttar Pradesh by 8%.
