Cold Wave in Rajasthan to remain far away, light rains likely in pockets

January 10, 2019 9:20 AM |


The weather of Rajasthan generally remains hot over the year with extreme temperatures during both Summer and Winter. This year, severe Winters over Rajasthan lasted only for one week between December 25 and January 1, which was exactly the time between Christmas and New Year. During this period, many districts of the state recorded sub-zero temperatures especially Churu and its adjoining areas. Severe Cold Wave conditions also made an appearance in many parts of the state during the same time frame.

However, since then, temperatures have increased marginally. Moreover, during the last 48 hours, minimum temperatures of West and Central Rajasthan have increased by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius.

On January 5, isolated light rains occurred over many northwestern locales of the state including Ganganagar, Hanumangarh, Anupgarh and adjoining areas.

Now, an active Western Disturbance is approaching the Western Himalayas which will induce a Cyclonic Circulation over Central Pakistan and adjoining Rajasthan. Therefore, we expect the weather of West and Northwest Rajasthan to become partly cloudy to cloudy with a possibility of isolated light rains starting tomorrow morning. These rains will persist for the next 2-3 days and will be focused over extreme western and northwestern parts of the state. Minimum temperatures may increase further due to change in wind direction from northerly to southwesterly and southeasterly. So, we can say that Cold Wave conditions are not expected to make a comeback over Rajasthan anymore for the season.
