Dust storm in Sri Ganganagar, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Churu, Sikar and Alwar

April 25, 2019 8:42 AM |

As predicted by Skymet, during the last 24 hours, dust storm activities accompanied with strong winds have been observed in western parts of Rajasthan such as Sri Ganganagar, Bikaner, Jaisalmer and Hanumangarh.

These pre-Monsoon weather activities occurred over the region in association with the Western Disturbance over the hills of North India and its induced cyclonic circulation over West Rajasthan.

At present, moisture incursion is taking place in Rajasthan from the Arabian Sea. Moreover, the Western Disturbance is also feeding moisture to most parts of the state.

Along with this, the day temperatures in most parts of Rajasthan are currently very high and settling above 40˚C. In some parts it is touching 44˚C. Yesterday, Churu recorded its maximum temperature at 44.4˚C, followed by Phalodi 44.2˚C, Chittorgarh 43.1˚C, Sri Ganganagar 43.0˚C and Bikaner 42.8˚C.

Thus, due to moisture, high temperatures and instability of atmosphere, dust storm activities along with isolated rain and thundershowers are expected to continue over western and northwestern parts of Rajasthan during the next 24 hours.

Places like Sri Ganganagar, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Hanumangarh, Churu, Jhunjhunu, Sikar, Alwar, Bharatpur and Jaipur may witness these weather activities.

The intensity of dust storm will not be very severe but still gusty winds may reach up to 50 or 60 kmph in few parts of Rajasthan. These weather activities will mainly take place during late afternoon and evening hours. But the sky will remain partly cloudy to cloudy throughout.

In the wake of these weather activities, marginal relief will be observed from the ongoing hot weather conditions, as day temperatures may drop by 1˚C to 2˚C. But as pre-Monsoon activities last for short duration only, the relief will be temporary.

As we move further towards May, temperatures are expected to increase and due to the combination of such high temperatures and moisture, the intensity of pre-Monsoon weather activities such as dust storm and strong winds will also keep increasing.
