Uttar Pradesh and Bihar have been received subdued rainfall activities since few days and in the past day also, light rains were recorded. In the last 24 hours from 8.30 am on Monday, Farbesganj witnessed 31.2 mm of rain, Chapra 6.4 mm, Agra 6 mm, Kanpur 3.6 mm, Sultanpur 3.8 mm and Purnea 2.8 mm of rain.
According to Skymet Weather, the axis of Monsoon trough has now shifted over the foothills of Himalayas and we expect that the trough will continue to persist over the foothills for next four to five days as well. Whenever Monsoon trough runs along the foothills, the weather across southern regions of the trough becomes dry.
With this, westerly winds, which are relatively dry in nature will start blowing over these regions, which mainly includes Indo-Gangetic plains. Therefore we expect dry weather conditions to prevail over these states. Lucknow, Varanasi, Patna, and Allahabad will witness dry weather conditions.
However, the foothill regions of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar may receive scattered showers but the intensity will be very less. Places such as Bareilly, Bahraich, Nazibabad, Lakhimpur Kheri, Gorakhpur, Kushinagar, Supual, Araria, Kisanganj, Sitamarhi, East and West Champaran may record light Monsoon showers.
As per Skymet Weather, the rain activity over Nepal hills have reduced and we expect that only light rains to continue over Nepal, therefore, the floods in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar will now subside due to reduced rainfall activities.
The axis of Monsoon trough will continue to remain over foothills until and unless any weather system develops over the Bay of Bengal or Northwest India and hence dry weather will prevail.
