Updated on April 16, 2019 6:30 PM: Dust storm, rain lash Jaipur, Bikaner and Sikar, pleasant weather ahead
Widespread rain and thundershowers lashed several parts of Rajasthan on Tuesday afternoon. Particularly places like Sikar, and Jaipur recorded good amount of weather activities.
Intense thunderclouds had developed over the state during the afternoon hours, with rains finally making an appearance in evening. These rains and thundershowers are likely to continue for couple of hours, resulting extremely pleasant evening and night.
We expect these pre-Monsoon activities to start receding by April 17 as the weather systems would move westwards. However, few isolated spells cannot be ruled out.
Maximum temperatures would once again show a rising trend but since winds would be as hot as they were, the rise would be gradual.
More dust storm, rain in Jaipur, Sri Ganganagar, Hanumangarh, Churu, Bikaner and Sikar
As predicted by Skymet Weather, pre-Monsoon activities have picked up pace across Rajasthan during the last 24 hours. The induced cyclonic circulation over West Rajasthan has resulted in fairly widespread rain and thundershower activities over many parts of Rajasthan. Particularly places like Chittorgarh and Sri Ganganagar witnessed heavy rain and thundershowers with isolated hailstorm activity.
Now this cyclonic circulation is still persisting, and a trough is extending from this system up to northern parts of Madhya Pradesh. Therefore, we expect on and off rain and thundershowers with dust storm to continue over many parts of Rajasthan, particularly the northern half.
The intensity and spread of these weather activities will be very less over the southern half of Rajasthan which is adjacent to Gujarat. Places like Barmer, Jodhpur may receive isolated rain and thundershowers only. These weather activities are expected to continue to till April 17.
Weather Alert: Dust storm and thundershower activities with strong winds (50-70 kmph) will affect over many places such as Ajmer, Alwar, Banswara, Baran, Barmer, Bharatpur, Bhilwara, Bikaner, Bundi, Chittorgarh, Churu, Dausa, Dholpur, Dungarpur, Ganganagar, Hanumangarh, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jalor, Jhalawar, Jhunjhunu, Jodhpur, Karauli, Kota, Nagaur, Pali, Pratapgarh, Rajsamand, Sawai Madhopur, Sikar, Sirohi, Tonk and Udaipur the districts of Rajasthan between April 15 to 17, 2019.
Due to these rains, heat wave conditions have abated from almost all parts of Rajasthan as the day temperatures have witnessed a significant fall.
By April 18, rains will vacate most parts of Rajasthan and weather will become almost dry. Moreover, we expect day temperatures to start rising once again and heat wave conditions to make a comeback.
