As Depression moves closer, heavy rains to return to Rajkot, Okha, Kandla and Bhuj, flooding likely

Gujarat weather

After experiencing flooding rains recently, the intensity of Monsoon rain has significantly reduced in Gujarat. And in the last 24 hours, only light rains have been recorded. While the Southwest Monsoon remained subdued in the regions of Saurashtra and Kutch.

Talking about the rainfall data of 24 hours from 8.30 am on Wednesday, Baroda has recorded 3.8 mm of rainfall, followed by Amreli 1 mm, Veraval 0.4 mm and Ahmedabad 0.1 mm.

According to our meteorologists, the Depression is presently lying over Northeast Chhattisgarh and its adjoining region. This system is gradually moving in the west/northwest direction, thus coming closer to Gujarat and Rajasthan.

In the wake of this movement, Monsoon rains would revive in Gujarat and heavy showers would return to North Gujarat, Saurashtra, and Kutch. Commencing with light intensity, the Monsoon rains would go heavy by tomorrow.

Places like Rajkot, Junagadh, Okha, Somnath, Jamnagar, Kandla, Bhuj, Naliya, Mehsana, Patan, and Deesa stand a chance to experience heavy to extremely heavy rains. Localised flooding cannot be ruled out which might even disrupt normal life.

Moreover, even after making an exit, the remnants of the system would continue to give some heavy showers in parts of Gujarat, Saurashtra, and Kutch. Thus, we can say that rainfall activities would continue for the next three days.

Meanwhile, the weather activities throughout this period would comparatively be feeble over South Gujarat such as Vapi, Surat, and Bharuch.

The recent good rains have helped the Gujarat region to enter into the normal deficiency category. However, not much improvement in the deficiency of Saurashtra and Kutch has been observed so far and it is still deficient by 30% (as of August 7). We hope the upcoming rains would improve the rainfall deficiency in the region.
