A break from scorching heat: Weather in Lucknow takes sudden U-turn
The sudden cool breeze that gradually turned into a light drizzle transformed into beautiful weather in Lucknow, leaving us all in awe. Bestowing upon us hill-like climatic conditions, it gives us another reason to go on long, unwinding drives and indulge in everyone's favorite pakoda and chai.
We hope that this weather change lasts for a few more days, given that it has already lasted for two days in a row.
