Overnight rains bring down mercury in UP

Lucknow: Overnight rains brought down mercury in most parts of Uttar Pradesh on Thursday even as the Met predicted overcast skies and more thundershowers.

The Regional Met Office signalled the arrival of the monsoon

The Met has predicted more rains accompanied by thunder and lightning in Ghaziabad, Noida, Baghpat and some other western parts of the state on Thursday.

The Regional Met Office signalled the arrival of the monsoon. Night-long rains saw temperatures dip by four-five degrees at most places in eastern Uttar Pradesh (Poorvanchal) and central region (Awadh).

Major power cuts continued to inconvenience people amid high humidity levels, however, gusty winds brought some relief. The minimum temperature here was recorded at 26 degrees Celsius.

Five persons, including a woman, were injured after being struck by lightning in Chandauli district, while two women were also killed in Deoria.

Although rains brought relief to many parts, Bundelkhand remained parched and continued to reel under very high temperature.
