The system persisting in central India is expected to give good amount of rain in Delhi and north India. The situation of patchy rain and passing showers is expected to change and become fairly widespread on the 29th and the 30th of July. Other than Delhi, parts of Haryana and Punjab could also receive moderate rain showers on Monday and Tuesday. Though the rain deficit faced by Haryana and Punjab this month may only improve marginally.
Currently the system is at east Madhya Pradesh and is likely to move towards west Madhya Pradesh and then northwards towards west Uttar Pradesh. Parts of southwest Uttar Pradesh may therefore receive moderate rain with heavy in pockets. Further, north Madhya Pradesh may receive some heavy showers in pockets while rest parts of the state will continuously receive light to moderate rain till the end of the month.
Good news is on its way for all those eagerly awaiting heavy monsoon rain in Rajasthan. “Parts of south and interior Rajasthan are already receiving good rain and may continue to witness light rain with moderate in one or two pockets till the 30th of July. This may be between 20-40mm”, informs Mahesh Palawat, Head of the weather forecasting team at Skymet Weather.
Meanwhile, we are also told that monsoon rain may lash one of the driest parts of the country-west Rajasthan. Bikaner and Ganganagar could finally receive rain on the 28th and 29th of July. Churu and adjoining areas may also receive good rain.
Jodhpur and Kota received 54mm and 43mm of rain respectively in the last 24hours. “Rain may reduce in these cities in another 24hrs and become mainly light”, added Mahesh Palawat.
“We at Skymet work every minute to make weather a part of everyone’s life but the fact remains that we need to educate and create more awareness about the importance of weather. We have the example of Uttarakhand in front of us and yet it is appalling that we still do not consider weather, as a part of our daily lives”, talks Jatin Singh, CEO of Skymet Weather Services.
