Dry weather conditions are prevailing over most parts of Uttar Pradesh for the last many days. This is one of the driest seasons for the state. Winter rains usually occur over western and central districts of Uttar Pradesh whenever any active Western Disturbance develops over the hills, inducing a Cyclonic Circulation over Northern Plains.
This is exactly the case this time as well as Winter rains are likely to make an appearance over many parts of Uttar Pradesh around December 12. During that time, we expect light to moderate rains over many parts of Uttar Pradesh as well as isolated rains over eastern parts of the state. Isolated hailstorm activities are also possible over Northwest Uttar Pradesh during the same time.
These rains will be due to an intense active Western Disturbance which is expected to approach Western Himalayas on December 10. It will induce a Cyclonic Circulation over Punjab and Haryana. Thereafter, a Trough will extend from Punjab to East Uttar Pradesh across Indo-Gangetic Plains leading to increase in rain activities.
On December 13, we expect many eastern parts of Uttar Pradesh to also start receiving scattered light rains with one or two moderate spells. On December 12 and 13, there will be good rain activities over most parts of Uttar Pradesh.
Weather activities will start subsiding by December 14 as the Western Disturbance and the Trough will move away. Weather will start clearing up. During that time, we expect many parts of Uttar Pradesh to experience dense fog leading to disruption of daily life and traffic snarls.
