Several districts of eastern and central Uttar Pradesh are expected to receive heavy rainfall accompanied with thunderstorms and gusty winds on May 30 and June 1, according to a forecast issued by Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Saturday.

Considering the alert, the state government has asked administrations of as many as 24 districts to stay on alert and make arrangements to reduce the damage cause by the adverse weather.

Director of state MeT department JP Gupta said, “The disturbance caused by cyclone Yaas is moving slowly towards north-western direction inland in the next couple of days before losing its energy. This movement will lead to adverse weather conditions in UP.”

Lucknow and other districts of central UP may also receive scattered rain over the next two days, according to IMD.

On Saturday too, some districts, including state capital, reported scattered rain which led to drop in temperatures.

The state capital recorded a maximum temperature of 30 degrees Celsius while the minimum temperature was recorded at 24 degrees C.
