Monsoon has withdrawn from most parts of the country including Gujarat, paving for clear sky and bright sunshine. The day temperature which was in lower 30 degrees has now risen once again and is now settling in the range of mid 30s to higher 30s.
Not only this, the moist southwesterly winds from Arabian Sea have also been replaced by northwesterly or northerly winds which are dry and warm in nature.
According to Skymet Weather, weather of Gujarat is typical in nature that witnesses two summer seasons. Maximum temperatures are higher between March and June. Thereafter, as the Monsoon approaches the state, the day temperatures start falling settle between 32°C and 34°C.
By the end of September, temperatures once again start rising and October is considered as the second summer for Gujarat.
Though maximum temperatures remain on higher side, minimum temperatures witness significant drop of around four degrees in September and October.
At present, Ahmedabad recorded day maximum of 36.2°C on Monday, while night temperature was 20.5°C. Similarly, Surat observed maximum and minimum temperature at 35.6°C and 21.8°C, respectively.
Diurnal variation between maximum and minimum is highest in October. For instance, the average maximum temperature for Ahmedabad in October is 36°C, whereas, the average minimum temperature is 21°C. With this, the difference between the two has increased substantially by at least 15 degrees.
