September 12, 2018 2:26 PM |

Rain in UPThe state of Uttar Pradesh is divided into two sub divisions, East and West Uttar Pradesh. Talking specifically about East Uttar Pradesh, the region consists of 42 districts out of which, some area does come under the foothills of the Himalayas which are governed by the weather over Nepal. Moreover, East Uttar Pradesh is prone to floods due to its proximity to the neighbouring nation and at times gets extremely heavy rains. However, this season, flooding rains have remained on the backseat.

East Uttar Pradesh sees all the four months of Monsoon, however, this year, Southwest Monsoon was delayed over the state of Uttar Pradesh by about ten days, which led to scanty rains during the month of June. By the end of the month, East Uttar Pradesh was rain deficient by about 60 percent.

After the arrival of Southwest Monsoon, rains remained scattered, sporadic and deficient. During the mid of July, the sub division saw a deficiency of -41 percent.

During the first ten days of September, the deficiency has come down to -5 percent. The best figure was achieved on September 7, when the deficiency was at a mere -3 percent.

The month of September sees Monsoon withdrawal starting from West Rajasthan and parts of West Uttar Pradesh. All the Monsoon systems which give rains start to truncate their reach and have a tendency of recurving towards the foothills till September giving rains over East Uttar Pradesh.
