The state of Gujarat generally remains dry and warm during the month of February and even warmer during the month of March. The state also has a large coastline that enjoys mild winters.

However, winters start receding quite early from the state and by the second half of February, both day and night temperatures start witnessing a rising trend.

For the last few days also, both the maximum and minimum temperatures are increasing significantly. In fact, the last 24 hours were the hottest of the season for the state wherein, most of the stations recorded the daytime high more than the 35-degree mark, even surpassing 37°C.

In fact, due to proximity to the Arabian Sea, the coastal stations of the state generally reel under humid and warm weather conditions during this time with the temperatures remaining under mid-30’s. However, this season, even the stations lying along the coastal belt of the state have also seen the mercury levels shooting up to the 38-degree mark, making it the hottest pocket in the country.


The given below table shows the temperatures recorded in various stations of Gujarat that had recorded highest maximums of the season yesterday:


The state generally experiences comfortable weather conditions when the northerly winds coming from North India reach the pocket followed by the winds coming from the Arabian Sea.

As per Skymet Weather, at present, winds are mostly easterly and are blowing from inland from parts of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra. Due to this, the temperatures have shot up to settle close to 37-38 degrees Celsius.

Moreover, for the next 2-3 days also, no significant changes in the weather is expected for the state and Gujarat would continue to observe above normal maximums in the coming days. March would be even hotter with the mercury levels settling close to even the 40-degree mark during mid-March.
