Lucknow, May 20 : Amphan super cyclone forming over the Bay of Bengal, which is expected to make landfall in Odisha and West Bengal on Wednesday, is likely to have no impact in Uttar Pradesh, the weather office here said. Earlier it was predicted that the Amphan cyclone would have an impact in several parts of the Purvanchal districts. But now it has been said that there are fewer possibilities. Met department director J P Gupta said today that two days back it was expected that the Amphan cyclone would have an impact in some districts of Purvanchal but now as the direction of the cyclone has changed, hence its impact has also decreased in the state.
"Now it will just rain in some of the eastern districts of the state," he said. But there is less chance of any thunderstorm in the state due to the cyclone, he further added. Mr Gupta further said that the cyclone would also have no impact on the severe hot weather in the state and it will continue unabated. Meanwhile, the rising temperature in the state has started to have an impact on the people as in most of the state the maximum temperature has crossed 40 degrees. On Tuesday Prayagraj recorded the highest temperature of 43.5 degree Celsius. Jhansi and Agra too registered 43.2 degree Celsius while in Lucknow it was 40.6 degree. (UNI)
