Snow, rain in Uttarakhand bring back winter chill in UP

Lucknow: The winter chill returned to most parts of Uttar Pradesh, including Lucknow, on Monday following heavy snowfall and rains in neighbouring Uttarakhand.

With snow in Badrinath, Kedarnath and some parts of Kumayun and Almora regions and rains pounding the state capital of the hill state, icy winds are blowing across Uttar Pradesh, bringing down both day and night temperatures, a weatherman said.

This weather pattern is likely to continue for the next few days, the weatherman warned. 

Director the regional Met department, J.P. Gupta said snowfall was likely to continue in Hemkund Saheb, Yamunotri, Gangotri, Badrinath, Kedarnath and Auli, leading to some further fall in the mercury.
