UP, Uttarakhand to obtain extra rainfall on Saturday: IMD
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has warned of constant heavy rainfall over Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand on Saturday.
On Friday, extraordinarily heavy rainfall (over 204mm in 24-hours) was recorded at many locations in Uttar Pradesh. Fatehpur tehsil (290mm), Ramnagar (270mm) and Haidargarh (210mm) — in Barabanki district — remained among the many wettest areas of the nation on the day. Lucknow (airport) recorded 160mm of rainfall.
Presently, Uttar Pradesh and its neighbourhood areas stay below the affect of a well-marked low-pressure space, which has continued since Thursday.
“As the well-marked low-pressure system has recurved towards UP and will persist there, UP will continue to receive rainfall till Saturday. The rainfall intensity, thereafter, will start reducing from Sunday onwards,” mentioned Anupam Kashyapi, head, climate forecasting division, IMD, Pune.
The prevailing low-pressure system is probably solely the second synoptic system (low stress/despair, and so forth.) since June to trigger rainfall over UP. The season, total, has seen poor rainfall exercise over the state, which stays among the many driest within the nation. It is but to obtain regular seasonal rainfall this 12 months. As on Friday, UP’s rainfall scenario stood at -39 per cent, with the state, to date, receiving 427mm of rainfall.
Meanwhile, the Southwest monsoon continues to stay lively over giant elements of central India, together with elements of north Konkan and Madhya Maharashtra, UP, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.
Currently, there’s a trough working between west-central Arabian Sea until the system over UP, which is attracting moist westerly winds from the Arabian Sea landwards, prevails. Besides, the monsoon trough runs to the south of its regular place, all of that are facilitating beneficial circumstances for the monsoon to stay active-to-vigorous over western-central India areas until the weekend.
With IMD’s Extended Range Forecast (ERF) indicating a probable growth of a recent low-pressure system within the west-central Bay of Bengal by September 18, there might be extra rainfall over the central India area beginning September 20. UP is probably to profit throughout the upcoming spell, as properly.
“Though UP received good rainfall since Thursday and is expected to receive more rain in the coming week, the existing deficit could be reduced. But it will not be sufficient enough to cover the season’s deficit as the normals are now high,” Medha Khole, senior meteorologist from IMD, Pune, mentioned.
This season, UP has persistently maintained a deficit ranging between 40 and 46 per cent, severely crippling its paddy cultivation.

With simply over a fortnight remaining for the monsoon season and one more low-pressure system prone to develop over the Bay of Bengal, its motion and depth will resolve the graduation of the monsoon’s withdrawal.
According to the ERF, there’s a probability of the monsoon retreating from the acute northwestern elements of the nation in direction of the final week of September.
