During the last 24 hours, rain and thundershowers lashed East Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and a couple of pockets of Bihar. According to the rainfall data available with Skymet, Bahraich has recorded 34 mm of rain, Gorakhpur 13 mm, Varanasi 6 mm, Daltonganj 35 mm, Dehri 9 mm, Jamshedpur 6 mm and Lucknow 5 mm in a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday.
These rains can be attributed to the Cyclonic Circulation over East Uttar Pradesh. Another Cyclonic Circulation is over the eastern parts of Bangladesh. A Trough is extending between these two systems. Moreover, the southeasterly humid winds from the Bay of Bengal are increasing moisture, thus making the conditions favorable for more rains.
According to our meteorologists, the Cyclonic Circulation over East Uttar Pradesh would move away eastwards leading to an increase in the rainfall activities in East Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand today. And we expect a few intense spells of rain and thundershowers until tomorrow morning in these states.
From the afternoon or evening of February 26, the rainfall activities may start reducing significantly from East Uttar Pradesh, however, scattered light showers may continue in Bihar and Jharkhand for some more time.
Amidst rains, the day temperature may drop by 3-4 degrees Celsius and settle below normal for the next 48 hours. Thereafter, a gradual increase is anticipated.
