Amritsar far exceeds September normal, more rains ahead

September 20, 2023 6:39 PM |

The city of Amritsar lies in the foothills of the Himalayas and is home to the iconic Golden Temple, making it a holy pilgrim site for Sikhs across the globe.

Amritsar starts to see a decline in rain in the month of September and the monthly rainfall amount remains less than 100 mm at just about 90 .7 mm, making it the least rainy month of Monsoon as Southwest Monsoon comes close to the withdrawal time. However, this September, the city has been seeing good rains, particularly in the second half while the first half remained dry.

During the last 24 hours, Amritsar saw 28 mm of rains, 27 mm the day before and 62 mm before that. With this, Amritsar has far exceeded the Monsoon withdrawal to 117.2 mm of rains.

These rains were attributed to the Low Pressure Area that moved towards South Rajasthan and Gujarat keeping the Monsoon trough south. The north south trough due to a feeble Western Disturbance has also been passing through the region.

Now the Low Pressure Area will weaken and move across the border. The western end of the Monsoon trough will move northward wherein the city will become vulnerable to rains.

Today, there are fewer chances of rains but moderate rains are expected over Amritsar from Sep 21 to Sep 23 due to the movement of the Monsoon trough towards the north. Also, Southwest Monsoon will not withdraw anytime soon from Amritsar as the withdrawal process hasn't begun from Rajasthan itself.
