After an elongated gap, the month of May began on a rainy note for most parts of Uttar Pradesh. Though these rains remained mainly light in nature and were not widespread in nature. On the past day also, some light spells were observed at isolated pockets of the state.

In the last 24 hours, stations like Jhansi witnessed 0.2 mm of rains, meanwhile, Varanasi also recorded some traces of rains.

Despite the intensity of the rains being light and highly localized, the temperatures of most parts have witnessed a significant drop. The day temperatures of most parts of the state are around five to six degrees below the normal levels and are getting arrested in mid-upper 30’s in most parts.

The reason for this significant drop in the maximums of Uttar Pradesh is the continuous flow of moderate easterly winds. These cool winds are coming from the eastern parts of the country i.e. from the states of West Bengal, Odisha, and Jharkhand wherein good rains are going on.

As per Skymet Weather, now a Western Disturbance has approached the Western Himalayan region. This system has already induced a cyclonic circulation over North Rajasthan, Haryana, and adjoining Punjab. Moreover, a trough is extending up to East India across Uttar Pradesh.

In the wake of this, we expect, dust storm and thundershower activities to commence over the western parts the state today evening. A few districts of East Uttar Pradesh may also receive isolated dust storm or thundershower activities.

Thus, the stations like Bareilly, Shahjahanpur, Lucknow, Kanpur, Bulandshahar, Mathura, Aligarh, Gorakhpur, Allahabad, Varanasi. Meerut and Agra may get to record some rains.

On and off rains may continue until May 3 and clearance is expected thereafter in the plains of the state. However, the foothills of the state may continue to receive isolated spells of rain and thundershowers.

Moreover, as the easterlies are expected to continue until May 6, we do not expect any significant rise in the temperature profile.
