Lightning in Uttar Pradesh_NewsGram 600

The long dry spell has finally bid the state of Uttar Pradesh adieu. During the last 24 hours, scattered light to moderate with isolated heavy spells occurred over many parts of the state.


In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Sultanpur recorded heavy rain to the tune of 65.4 mm, Jhansi 52 mm, Varanasi 41.2 mm, and Agra 34 mm of rains. In the same time span, Banda observed 24 mm of rains, Aligarh 17.8 mm, Shahjahanpur 9.8 mm, Lucknow 5.8 mm and Hardoi 1.2 mm of rains.

These rains can be attributed to the low-pressure area which was over Northcentral Madhya Pradesh and the axis of Monsoon trough has also shifted towards North Madhya Pradesh. The regions which were in the vicinity of these systems witnessed rainfall activity.

As per Skymet Weather, the low-pressure area has now shifted northward, and is now seen over North Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Southwest Uttar Pradesh. In fact, the axis of Monsoon will also shift northwards over West Uttar Pradesh. Therefore, the intensity of rain will increase over the west and central districts of Uttar Pradesh. Light to moderate rain with few heavy rainy spells are likely over many districts of the west and central Uttar Pradesh until July 24. Thus, the rain deficiency of West Uttar Pradesh which is currently at 49 percent will come down to some extent.

As the eastern districts will only witness isolated light rains, the rain deficiency of these regions will continue to be quite high.

Moreover, rain and thundershowers with moderate lightning strikes are likely over Amethi, Auraiya, Badaun, Baghpat, Banda, Bulandshahar, Chitrakoot, Etah, Etawah, Farrukhabad, Fatehpur, Firozabad, Noida, Ghaziabad, Hamirpur, Hapur, Hardoi, Jalaun, Jhansi, Kannauj, Kanpur Dehat, Kanpur Nagar, Nagar, Kaushambi, Lalitpur, Lucknow,  Mahoba, Mahrajganj, Mainpuri, Mathura, Meerut, Pratapgarh, Rae Bareli, Sonbhadra and Unnao during the next 12 hours.
