Uttar Pradesh weather

The Low-Pressure Area is over Northeast Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Southwest Uttar Pradesh. This system will increase the rainfall activities in Uttar Pradesh and we expect heavy rains to lash central and eastern districts of the state.

Meanwhile, scattered showers are likely in the western parts of the state. Places like Varanasi, Prayagraj, Amethi, Jaunpur, Gorakhpur, Lucknow, Kanpur, Sultanpur, etc will get drenched. Likewise, good rains are likely in Bareilly and along the foothills of Uttar Pradesh.

During the last 24 hours, light to moderate rain/thundershowers occurred at a few places over East Uttar Pradesh and at many places over West Uttar Pradesh. Some heavy showers also occurred at isolated places over East Uttar Pradesh.

Bareilly and Varanasi received good rains and thundershower activities to the tune of 44 mm and 21 mm respectively. Fursatganj observed 47 mm, Kanpur 23 mm and Lucknow recorded light rain to the tune of 1 mm in the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday.

As of August 19, East Uttar Pradesh is rain deficient by 17%, while West Uttar Pradesh by 29%. Generally, the weather systems that develop over the Bay of Bengal, be it a Low-Pressure Area or Depression move in west/northwest directions and thus give enough rains over East Uttar Pradesh. By the time they reach West Uttar Pradesh, the moisture depletes and hence rainfall reduces. This is the reason why West Uttar Pradesh always observes high rain deficiency in comparison to East Uttar Pradesh.
