Lucknow’s weather has been rather unpredictable over the past few weeks. We’ve seen rainfall, cloudy skies, immense heat and what not. Only yesterday, the city awoke to a pleasant day, and by the afternoon, the sun appeared to mar everyone’s plans. Now however, there are reports that suggest that monsoon in Lucknow will arrive tomorrow most likely.

Lucknowites are known to love the monsoon season like no other. And that is exactly why this has us rejoicing. As per the meteorological department, the strong rain carrying winds and clouds will come from the eastern side of the country and could inch into Lucknow by tomorrow.

The heat in the city touched new heights this time. The average temperature was a few notches above what it should be and that itself was a major cause for concern. Additionally, the city also faced harsh heat conditions and many heat strokes this summer. Over the past few weeks however, the rain has been gracing Lucknowites and the pre monsoon showers are getting is geared up for the heavy rain spell.

On the days that it rained here in the city, the temperature remained at a comfortable 30 to 35 degrees. These temperatures spoiled us for comfort and once the mercury rose, there seemed to be no respite from it.

According to reports, the monsoon rains will arrive from the eastern side, where the season has already hit the cities.

During the monsoons however, the authorities will have to ensure that the power situation in the city is kept under control and doesn’t cause too many powercuts in the city.

Now that the monsoons are finally going to be here, we’re rather excited and are already chalking out our plans. Though the monsoons are getting here late, we’re still hoping that the season sticks around for a while.
