Gujarat Rains 1

Monsoon arrived with a bang over the state of Gujarat and ever since its arrival, the state has been recording on and off rains. The intensity was moderate to extremely heavy during the first week of July wherein, parts of South Gujarat, particularly, Valsad saw three-digit rains that submerged most parts of the city. On the other hand, most parts of Saurashtra and Kutch remained mainly dry.

Thereafter, the rains started easing out and now for the last two days, the rain intensity has dropped significantly with only isolated pockets receiving heavy showers.

In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Thursday, Idar recorded 21 mm of rains, Diu 11 mm, Vadodara 7 mm, Surat 1 mm and Ahmedabad witnessed 0.3 mm of rains.


The rains over Gujarat has reduced due to the weakening of the cyclonic circulation which was over South Gujarat. The offshore trough is also persisting from South Gujarat to North Kerala coast. In the wake of this, we do not expect much increase in the rain activities at least for the next two to three days.
