The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning saying that thunderstorm accompanied with rain may lash parts of Uttar Pradesh in the next three hours.
Hardoi, Sitapur, Farrukhabad districts and adjoining areas could be affected by thunderstorm, rain, quall and hailstone, ANI quoted IMD statement as saying.
Several parts of north India are likely to witness thunderstorm, accompanied by gusty winds and moderate squall on Tuesday (May 29). Wind speed is expected to vary between 50 and 70 km per hour, according to the IMD.
IMD issued an alert on Monday saying "under the influence of a western disturbance, a cyclonic circulation over Haryana and a west-east tough from northwest Rajasthan to central Madhya Pradesh in lower levels" will bring light to moderate rainfall in north India.
In the first week of May, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) had issued a warning of thunderstorm accompanied with squall and hail in large parts of northern and eastern India, prompting authorities to put various emergency measures such as part-closure of schools and cancelling leave of civic officials in place.
Delhi and adjoining areas in Northern India have been facing repeated warnings and thunderstorms for the past two weeks.
