At present, West and East Uttar Pradesh are rain deficient by 58% and 42%, respectively. As per the weathermen, the weather activities are expected to increase over Uttar Pradesh as a Western Disturbance is over Jammu and Kashmir. Its induced Cyclonic Circulation will form over Rajasthan and a trough from this system would go up to West Uttar Pradesh.
Moreover, southeasterly winds from the Bay of Bengal would affect the eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh. Hence, rain and thundershowers with dust storm is possible at many parts of Uttar Pradesh on April 16 and 17. The forecasters say that on April 16, the intensity of rains will be light to moderate over West Uttar Pradesh and light in eastern parts.
Come April 17, few moderate to heavy spells are expected over West and Central Uttar Pradesh. Places like Lucknow, Kanpur, Aligarh, Agra, Hardoi, Mathura, Bulandshahr, Ghaziabad, Hathras, Kasganj and Farrukhabad would get to witness these activities.
On April 17, hailstorm and dust storm with strong winds would be a sight. There are chances that isolated pockets might get to witness high velocity winds of 60-70 kmph. Looks like, these pre-Monsoon activities have the potential to damage wheat crop that is being harvested at present in many parts of Uttar Pradesh. The harvested as well as ready to harvest crops would suffer due to strong winds and hailstorm activity.
Temperatures are expected to plummet by three to four degrees on April 16 and 17 and can come down in the range of 36°C-40°C. While, weather would clear up by April 18 and the temperatures would once again shoot up.
