This pre-Monsoon season started with a rainy note for entire Uttar Pradesh and these unseasonal rains have caused substantial damage to many crops of wheat, mustard and pulses due to heavy rains, strong winds, lightning strikes as well as hailstorm activities.
Now, however a relief is in sight over Uttar Pradesh in terms of rains. Another spell can be expected around March 20. While the western parts of Uttar Pradesh might receive rains around March 19 or 21 in the wake of an upcoming fresh Western Disturbance, East Uttar Pradesh will get rain activities around March 21.
