Rain In Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh

Wet spells over the state of Uttar Pradesh would soon make a comeback by  late afternoon or evening today due to a trough starting from a Cyclonic Circulation over central parts of Rajasthan and running up to southeast Uttar Pradesh.

January started on a poor note in terms of rain for Uttar Pradesh. To be precise, by the middle of January the deficiency was almost to the tune of 90%, which dropped by the end of the month due to some decent spells

For the month of January, the rain deficiency for East Uttar Pradesh was 31%, while West Uttar Pradesh was deficient by 14%. However, the month of February has seen a series of weather systems, which have been travelling to Uttar Pradesh and giving on and off rain. This has helped improve the situation in both the parts of the state, which are now surplus.

East Uttar Pradesh was rain surplus by 2% and West Uttar Pradesh by 25% (as on February 15). Weather-wise last week has been silent for the region. West Uttar Pradesh witnessed rains only in the first half of the last week, since then the weather is dry. Thus, the rainfall values have now come down to 1% in East Uttar Pradesh and 15% in West Uttar Pradesh.

Today onward, we expect some rain and thundershowers, which will last till tomorrow. Areas close to Uttarakhand and national capital, Delhi and the foothills of Uttar Pradesh would start witnessing wet spells. By tomorrow, i.e., February 27, entire Uttar Pradesh would witness rain and thundershower activities with possibility of hailstorm at few places.

Bahraich, Bareilly, Aligarh, Bulandshahr, Meerut would start witnessing rain and thundershower activities by late afternoon or evening today. Eventually, the rain belt would cover Lucknow, Kanpur and Allahabad as well. As the system moves eastward, places like Varanasi, Gorakhpur and Sultanpur would also be a witness to rain and thundershower activities.

February 28 onward, the weather would be dry, and there's a possibility of rain in Uttar Pradesh ending on a positive note. Next wet spell is expected around March 2.
