During the last 24 hours, light to moderate rain and thundershower activities have occurred over the northern, eastern and southern parts of Uttar Pradesh. The central parts of the state too observed moderate to heavy rain and thundershowers. Now, the intensity of rains will increase and places like Prayagraj, Varanasi, Mirzapur, Jaunpur, Kaushambi, Chitrakoot, Saharanpur, Bijnor and Muzaffarnagar are likely to get heavy Monsoon rains during the next 24 hours.
Due to increased cloud cover and subsequent rainfall, a significant drop in day temperatures has already been observed over these areas.
On the contrary, the southwestern parts of Uttar Pradesh remained mostly dry and warm, along with high humidity levels in the past 24 hours.
According to Skymet Weather, a Trough is extending from Northwest Rajasthan up to Northwest Bay of Bengal across North Rajasthan, South Uttar Pradesh, and Jharkhand. Another Cyclonic Circulation is lying over North Madhya Pradesh and adjoining parts of South Uttar Pradesh. In addition to these systems, a feeble Low-Pressure Area is lying over the western parts of Bihar and adjoining parts of Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand.
In the wake of all these systems, moist winds are blowing over the state. Thus, the southeastern and northwestern parts of Uttar Pradesh will observe heavy rains with moderate lightning during the next 24 hours. The remaining parts of this region will get to see light to moderate rains and thundershowers.
Meanwhile, the remaining parts of West Uttar Pradesh will continue to get light rains for the next 24 hours. Thereafter, the rain intensity will increase, this is because the above Trough is likely to shift further northwards. We expect these conditions to continue for the next three to four days.
Places like Prayagraj, Varanasi, Mirzapur, Jaunpur, Kaushambi, Chitrakoot, Saharanpur, Bijnor and Muzaffarnagar are likely to get heavy Monsoon rains during the next 24 hours. On the contrary, other places like Ghaziabad, Noida, Gautam Buddha Nagar, Meerut, Agra, and Mathura will remain mainly dry and warm.
