The gusty winds, she said, could also lead to lodging of wheat crop to some extent. Since harvesting has already begun in some parts of the state, the damage won’t be much, she added.

Experts attribute the inclement weather around Baisakhi to a fresh western disturbance that will be active in northwest India on April 12.

“Scattered to fairly widespread rain with thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds (30-50 kmph) is predicted over Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana from 13th-15th April,” according to the India Meteorological Department bulletin.
