The state of Uttar Pradesh is all set to witness light to moderate rains in the wake of current Western Disturbance over North Pakistan and adjoining Jammu and Kashmir with its induced Cyclonic Circulation over Central Pakistan and adjoining North Rajasthan and West Punjab. This weather system is expected to give rains and thundershowers over west and central Uttar Pradesh by today late evening or night.
However, the day temperatures have risen over parts of Uttar Pradesh. The mercury generally sees a rise in approach of Western Disturbance since the Western Disturbance is preceded by a warm front.
The day temperatures over Bareilly, Aligarh, Banda and Lucknow have risen significantly and are 4°C to 8°C above normal. Aligarh recorded its maximum at 25.8°C and is 7°C above normal. Likewise, the minimums too have risen and are 2°C to 4°C above normal. Aligarh has seen a rise in its minimums by 5°C, whereas Agra and Lucknow went up by 3°C. It looks like even the eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh have seen a rising trend in temperatures. Sultanpur and Varanasi recorded its maximums 3°C up from normal.
West Uttar Pradesh would start witnessing rains by late evening/ night of January 21. As the system would move eastward, it will then give rains over Central and East Uttar Pradesh. Thus, we can say that most parts of the state would receive rains between January 22 and 23. These places would witness light to moderate wet spells at many places wherein the intensity would be slightly less over the southern districts of Uttar Pradesh adjoining Madhya Pradesh. Not only this, the isolated pockets of west and foothills of Uttar Pradesh would witness hailstorm activity too.
At the time of rains with persistent clouding, temperatures would see a dip and can even come to normal or below normal range. January 24 onward, rains will be on a receding note but then around January 25 and 26, rains would once again pick up pace and will give more rains over East Uttar Pradesh.
