Rains to increase over Uttar Pradesh and Bihar

July 24, 2018 2:58 PM |

UP Rain

Bihar and Uttar Pradesh are among the most rain deficient states at present. Although, West Uttar Pradesh and southeast up have received on and off moderate showers, but most parts of Bihar have remained dry. However, occasional rains were witnessed by eastern districts of Bihar such as Bhagalpur, Purnea etc.

The reason for these deficient rains can be attributed to the absence of any significant weather system over the Indo-Gangetic Plains.


In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Monday, Purnea 54.6 mm, Agra 30.8 mm, Jhansi 28.6 mm, Aligarh 26.8 mm, Bhagalpur 14.1 mm, Bahraich 14 mm, Allahabad 13.6 mm, Lucknow 10.8 mm, Varanasi 4 mm, Supaul 3.6 mm, Gaya 1.2 mm.

Moreover, the axis of monsoon trough also remained south of these two states, mostly over central parts of the country, that is why Central India received surplus rain whereas, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar continued with almost dry weather and merely scanty rains.

Now, the well-marked low-pressure area has gradually moved towards Southwest Uttar Pradesh and the axis of monsoon trough is also shifting towards North. In the next 24 hours, the well-marked low-pressure will further move north and may affect many parts of Uttar Pradesh as a low-pressure area.

The axis of monsoon trough will also pass via Bihar. Therefore, in another 24 hours, rainfall is expected to increase over Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. These rains are also expected to continue for the next 2-3 days.

Few spells of rain and thundershowers with isolated heavy likely at some places of Agra, Aligarh, Amethi, Auraiya, Badaun, Banda, Bara Banki, Bareilly, Bijnore, Bulandshehar, Etah, Etawah, Faizabad, Farrukhabad, Fatehpur, Firozabad, Hamirpur, Hardoi, Jalaun, Jyotiba Phule Nagar, Kannauj, Kanpur Dehat, Kanpur Nagar, Kanshiram Nagar, Kaushambi, Kheri, Lucknow, Mahamaya Nagar, Mahoba, Mainpuri, Mathura, Meerut, Moradabad, Muzaffarnagar, Pilibhit, Pratapgarh, Rae Bareli, Rampur, Saharanpur, Sambhal, Shahjahanpur, Shamli, Sitapur and Unnao during next 12 hours.
