After an unusually excess rains this season, Monsoon withdrawal yet to make its mark over Gujarat

October 10, 2019 4:27 PM |

Contrary to the pattern, Gujarat, which is otherwise considered a mostly dry state, has seen bountiful rains this Monsoon season. This time rains have turned out 43% excess for the state. Region-wise while Saurashtra and Kutch remained 66% excess, the Gujarat region saw 29% excess rains. In fact, out of the total 33 districts in total, 26 have received more than 100% excess rains this Monsoon season.

As a matter of fact, Monsoon rains only get stretched up to mid-September following which Monsoon withdrawal sets in over Gujarat. Normally, Monsoon withdrawal is up to its completion from the state until September 30. This time on the other hand, Monsoon withdrawal has got delayed over the state considerably.

Normally, the month of October is rather dry. Going by the data, in the month of October, Saurashtra and Kutch region only receives 18 mm rains while 23 mm rains are seen over Gujarat region. Contrary to the pattern, rains have been continuously lashing the state till now. In just 9 days of October, the Saurashtra and Kutch have received 50.2 mm rains and Saurashtra and Kutch have recorded 25.6 mm.

In the first half of October, temperatures usually soar in Gujarat with some regions even recording above 40 degrees. But this time, any such pattern is yet to be seen with only a few regions such as Bhuj, Naliya and Ahmedabad managing to reach mid-30s.

Monsoon withdrawal normally sets in first over West Rajasthan and then gradually covers Gujarat. However, sometime Monsoon withdrawal even begins from Kutch.

Though Monsoon withdrawal has started its journey and just recently the withdrawal got initiated from West Rajasthan, its yet to begin in Gujarat.

Although on side notes, the conditions are becoming favorable for the withdrawal with drop in humidity, change in wind direction, absence of rains and rising temperatures.

Monsoon withdrawal might set in over the state in the next 48 hours following which dry days lie ahead for the state.
