During the last 24 hours, foothills and eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh have received fairly widespread light to moderate rains and thundershower activities. A few places also reported heavy rains. These rains were due to a Cyclonic Circulation that was persisting over eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh. Moreover, humid winds from Bay of Bengal were also feeding moisture over the region.
This was a welcome shower for the state which was reeling under drought-like conditions. The state was running largely rain deficient.
Also, the foothills of Nepal received heavy to very heavy rains. As a good sign, water levels of rivers over Uttar Pradesh have now gone up. The increased water availability is surely going to affect the agriculture industry in the state with ample water for irrigation.
Now, a Western Disturbance which has approached the Western Himalayas will affect the western parts of the state as well. So, we expect light to moderate rain and thundershowers to occur over Western and central parts of Uttar Pradesh for the next 24 to 48 hours. Dust storm activity is also set to take place along with the rains. The rain intensity will now reduce over the Eastern parts, but we still expect light to moderate rains over here.
These rains are set to continue over the region until June 26 over many parts of the state. The weather will once again go dry June 27 onward. This is when the temperatures may rise marginally. Although due to the continuous prevalence of easterly winds from Bay of Bengal, temperatures will not rise much. Also, as a good note, heat wave like conditions will not make a comeback now.
