After a long wait and a bit of a hide and seek, good Pre-Monsoon showers have finally been observed over Ahmedabad. These rains were much welcomed as the city has remained almost dry for the past three months.
After witnessing 4 mm of rain during the first week of March, Ahmedabad remained dry throughout. Since then, about 1 mm of rain was recorded on May 29. Thereafter, about a month later, Ahmedabad recorded traces of rain on June 19.
However, rain gods finally decided to have some mercy on the residents and good showers were received after a long wait. During the last 24 hours on Wednesday, the city recorded a good 12 mm of rain. These rains have also resulted in a drop in the maximum temperature which is currently settling at 36 degrees.
Southwest Monsoon has further advanced over the extreme southern parts of Gujarat and some more parts of Madhya Pradesh as well. However, the Northern Limit of Monsoon is slightly short of Ahmedabad and the city is yet to witness Monsoon rains. However, conditions are favourable for the further advancement of Monsoon soon.
So far during the month of June, Ahmedabad has recorded a mere 12 mm of rain against its monthly average of 80 mm. When Monsoon makes an onset over the city, some good rains can be expected which will help Ahmedabad get closer to its monthly average rains.
