It's the perfect weather for you to stroll around the streets of Lucknow while sipping on garma-garam chai.
Weather in Lucknow has taken a pleasant turn owing to the western disturbances and we're not sure if we're supposed to pack our woollens just yet. The city witnessed heavy rainfall and hailstorm today, leaving Lucknowites in a sunshine state of mind.
Covered with hailstones, the roads in the city looked utterly picturesque and the residents of Lucknow took to their social media accounts to document this rare sight.
Mid-day onwards, Lucknow witnessed a heavy spell of rainfall coupled with hailstones in major parts of the city, which was followed by the sun peeking out of the clouds shortly. Amidst all this, in areas like Kanpur, Sonbhadra and Churk, these stormy conditions have been a nuisance for farmers as they have been causing severe damage to the standing crops.
According to the MET department of Lucknow, the city recorded a temperature of maximum of 30°C while the minimum lay at 16°C on Wednesday. Given this wide gap between the minimum and maximum temperatures, the state administration has issued health warnings for the general public, as flu patients have been on a speedy rise. Till Wednesday, the maximum amount of rainfall was recorded in Kanpur and Churk.
The humidity today is standing over 65% and the temperatures at night are said to fall somewhere around 17°C-16°C till Friday. The upcoming weekend will supposedly be chilly, with temperatures dropping to a minimum of 14°C and it has being predicted that Lucknowites will be waking up to a sunny Monday morning.
So if you were planning on folding your blankets for the next winter season to come, we'd suggest you to not do that just yet. Instead, keep your umbrellas and raincoats handy as well and make the most of the weather because if spring is here, can summer be far behind?!
