Uttar Pradesh gears up for one of the rainiest week, flood warning issued

Uttar Pradesh rains

Heavy to very heavy rains have been lashing eastern and the northwestern parts of Uttar Pradesh for the last 2-3 days. According to the rainfall data available with Skymet, Lucknow has recorded 122 mm of rain, followed by Bareilly 112 mm, Bahraich 105 mm, Varanasi 104 mm, Shahjahanpur 101 mm and Fursatganj 100 mm, in the last 24 hours, from 8:30 am on Wednesday.

Some other cities like Varanasi and Prayagraj have also observed moderate amounts of rain which has resulted in water-logging at several places.

The reason for these rains can be attributed to the Well-Marked Low-Pressure Area over the eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh. A Trough is also extending from Punjab up to Northeast Indian across this Well-Marked Low-Pressure Area.

Due to these systems, places lying along the foothills of Uttar Pradesh, as well as the eastern districts of the state, will continue to get fairly widespread rain and thundershower activities for the next 24 to 48 hours. Moreover, flood-like situations cannot be ruled out in these areas. Rivers like Ramganga, Gomti, Sharda, Rapti might swell and water-logging is likely.

On the other hand, the southern districts of the state such as Aligarh, Mathura, Agra, and Bundelkhand will remain almost dry and hot due to the Trough shifting towards the northern parts of West Uttar Pradesh. Rains will, therefore, remain mostly confined to the foothills and the eastern parts of the state.

After 48 hours, rains in East Uttar Pradesh will taper, but the foothills will continue to get moderate to heavy Monsoon rains until July 15. Thereafter, the present Trough will move further southwards, thus bringing in rain and thundershower activities for the southern districts of the state as well. Overall, we can say that this would be the rainiest week of the Monsoon season so far for Uttar Pradesh.
