A wet spell is expected to cover many parts of the state of Rajasthan in the coming few days. All thanks to a major weather system affecting the Indian mainland, January 20 onward-
A fresh Western Disturbance which at present is on Iran and adjoining region is likely to move eastwards and is expected to reach North Pakistan by tomorrow. Under its influence, an induced Cyclonic Circulation is expected to form over adjoining Pakistan. Both the systems are likely to further move East-northeastwards.
First a thick cover of clouding is expected to hover over most parts of Rajasthan. This will lead to a rise in minimum temperatures. Southerly/south-southwesterly winds are expected to blow over the region. By tomorrow, rain and thundershower activity may affect isolated parts of extreme West and North Rajasthan including that of Jaisalmer and Ganganagar.
This activity will thus magnify in intensity by January 21. Fairly widespread activity is expected to cover many districts of Rajasthan during the day. Moderate rain and thundershower with gusty winds is likely. Isolated pockets especially the northern parts of the state are even at an alert against hailstorm activity. Day temperatures will see a significant drop due to the presence of multi-layered clouds and precipitation. This might even lead to very cool conditions over the northern parts of the state. By morning of January 22, the wrath of weather will finally take a backseat.
A Weather Alert has been issue for the state as well-
Rain and thundershower at some places with few moderate spell and hailstorm likely over Ajmer, Alwar, Barmer, Bharatpur, Bhilwara, Bikaner, Bundi, Chittaurgarh, Churu, Dausa, Dhaulpur, Ganganagar, Hanumangarh, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jalor, Jhunjhunun, Jodhpur, Karauli, Kota, Nagaur, Pali, Rajsamand, Sawai Madhopur, Sikar, Sirohi, Tonk and Udaipur districts of Rajasthan from 20 Jan night to 22 Jan- Skymet Weather
In the past many days a mainly dry weather was prevailing over the state so this spell might come as a breather for many.
