Call it a speed storm

A STORM with a wind-speed of 70 kilometre per hour blew away hoardings, scaffoldings and even swept a big brand?s sale under the marquee. At around 1.30 pm, a shrill-whistling squall came and attained a peak speed of 70 kmph for more than a minute. The rain followed that quelled the storm.

A STORM with a wind-speed of 70 kilometre per hour blew away hoardings, scaffoldings and even swept a big brand’s sale under the marquee.  At around 1.30 pm, a shrill-whistling squall came and attained a peak speed of 70 kmph for more than a minute. The rain followed that quelled the storm. What happened on Friday was forecast by the weatherman two days ago, the day when city received 44.6 mm rain, as the systems that were responsible for it didn’t wane.

The storm and the rain appeared due to the western disturbances that came from western UP a few days ago and brought showers. The same systems and multiple circulations continued to exist but went dormant for a lack of sufficient moisture feed. “The existing circulations and systems received heavy moisture feed from the Arabian sea.

They all became active again. Now the systems have moved to Eastern UP and replicating the same climatic conditions there. And now they are on the wane. However, there will not be any significant rise in the temperature at least for next two days,” said weatherman.
