Every weather system has it’s own impact and as of now the Western Disturbance lying over North Pakistan and it’s adjoining areas is affecting north and eastern parts of the country. The system is extending as an upper air system up to 4.5 kms and is likely to move further East. System’s induced Cyclonic Circulation lies over West Rajasthan and it’s adjoining area in the lower levels. This is likely to head in north-east direction. Thus, we can expect rain and thundershower activities to begin in the parts of north-west Uttar Pradesh by late afternoon or the evening of January 5. The rain activity will then further head towards eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh. As the system moves further ahead, more parts of Uttar Pradesh will get drenched in rain. Hence, rain and thundershower activities will eventually touch the extreme north-west and east parts of Bihar by January 6 afternoon or evening.
In the last 24 hours, dense fog has occurred over some more places of north-west Uttar Pradesh and isolated pockets of West Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Visibility remained 50 metres or below in parts of Bareilly and Patna. On the other hand, the visibility recorded across Shahjahanpur, Gorakhpur was in and around 200 metres. Lucknow and Kanpur recorded visibility at 500 metres.
Due to the weather activities, day temperatures are expected to drop significantly and rise in morning temperatures can be seen over the states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Fog intensity will also drop significantly and shallow to moderate fog can be seen at isolated pockets of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Not to forget, the foothills of Uttar Pradesh is expected to witness Cold Day conditions.
