Jaipur Rains

The capital city of Rajasthan Jaipur has been receiving continuous light to moderate spells of rain as one after the other systems have been moving from East to West across Central parts of India and East Rajasthan.

In a span of 24 hours from 8.30 am on Friday, Jaipur received moderate rainfall of 20 mm. The rains picked up pace towards the midnight hours and are still continuing today morning as well. The intensity of rain is currently light but it may intensify anytime soon.

Presently, a Well-Marked Low-Pressure Area lies over South Haryana and adjoining North Rajasthan. The axis of Monsoon Trough is running from Anupgarh, Central parts of Low-Pressure Area, Gwalior, and then eastwards towards Northeast Bay of Bengal. Another Trough is moving from the Well-Marked Low to Gujarat in the upper level.

Today, the rainfall activity is likely to intensify further over the city. Mainly heavy rains are expected with one or two pockets receiving only light to moderate spells. The rainfall activity is likely to continue tomorrow as well. However, the intensity will remain a little light.

The city from June 1 to August 16 has received 530.7 mm of rains against the normal of 354.8 mm, which is almost 50% more.

Rainfall amount in the city is already in excess and we expect more rains to occur over the city in the coming days as well. Not just Jaipur, but East Rajasthan has also crossed the normal rainfall figure for the month and is excess by 48%.
