The monsoon in Uttar Pradesh has taken a brief halt and is set to revive in a couple of days, a senior official of the weather office said today.

It said that isolated places in the state received light to moderate rains accompanied by lightning.

"The monsoon, which had shown initial promise with several parts of the state receiving rains, has taken a brief halt because of certain reasons and is set to revive in a couple of days," Director of the Meteorological Department J P Gupta said.

While Jhansi received 5 cm of rain, Shrawasti and Banda got 3 cm each. Kaushambi and Agra recorded 2 cm each and Mirzapur, Pratapgarh and Mainpuri got 1 cm each.

The day temperatures fell appreciably in the Allahabad division, while it rose in the Faizabad and Bareilly divisions. There was no major change in the remaining divisions of the state.

The maximum temperature was recorded at 38.2 degrees Celsius in Kanpur.

The MeT has forecast rains and thundershowers very likely at isolated places over the state.
