    The department has also predicted heavy rains at many other places on Friday.

    Due to the heavy downpour, rivers including the Ganga, Yumuna, Saryu and Ghaghra, are in spate and the water levels are likely to increase further. People living in low-lying areas and river banks have been asked to relocate to higher areas, an official told IANS.

    In the past 48-hours, heavy rains have lashed the central and eastern parts of the state leading to water logging in cities and towns.

    Varanasi recorded 15.2 mm, Bareilly 11.2 and Ghazipur 11.

    The day temperatures dipped by four notches owing to heavy rains across the state. The maximum temperature recorded was 29.1 degrees Celsius and the minimum was 23.7.

    Humidity at most places was 100 per cent.

    On Friday, after almost a week, people in the state capital woke up to a dry day. However, there is the overcast sky in Lucknow and the Met has predicted moderate to very heavy rains throughout the day.
