Brace yourselves for sunny and humid days ahead.
In the wake of the looming COVID-19 threat, Lucknow residents have been staying indoors and simultaneously, the streets have been empty and the air, cleaner. Breaking the silence of the missing urban rush on Friday, Lucknow has been drenched in a loop of incessant rainfall for the greater part of the day. Lucknowites woke up to a windy morning and this sudden change of weather has definitely brought in a pleasant change of mood amidst the prevailing gloom.
A leisurely rainfall
Friday witnessed a windy start to the day, followed by cloudy skies and hours of rainfall dominating it. In the later hours, the sun peeked out of the clouds shortly which was then pursued by a prominent sunset. The city recorded a maximum temperature of 29°C while the minimum was slated to be 19°C. The humidity level stood at 77% and given such a whimsical weather, citizens are being told to stay wary of the common cold and flu.
The post rain period saw Lucknowites crowding on their terraces to capture the dimming skies and it seems like the constant flow of fresh air has breathed a new lease of life around. But do brace yourselves for sunny and humid days ahead.
So if you're in Lucknow, we hope that this rainfall has urged you to appreciate the beauty of unfiltered nature amidst the predominant silence in the city. But no matter how tempting it was to step out in the rain, we hope you've practiced self-restraint from doing so.
