Gujarat Rains

Currently, the state of Gujarat is the most rain deficit pocket of the country. For meteorological purposes, the state has been divided into two subdivisions. As of now, the rainfall deficiency in Gujarat region is 42% while Saurashtra & Kutch region received 56% less rainfall than normal.

Ever since the onset of Monsoon, the state has witnessed subdued rain activities. However, coastal regions of Gujarat have received a few good spells of rain.

A cyclonic circulation is prevailing over West Madhya Pradesh and adjoining East Rajasthan. This weather system is likely to move in a westerly direction and a trough is expected to form over Saurashtra and Kutch.

These weather systems will eventually enhance the rain activities over Gujarat. For the next 24 hours, Skymet Weather expects scattered light to moderate rains that will further intensify from July 27 onwards. During this period, some heavy spells across the state are expected.

Good rains have been witnessed over several areas of Rajasthan now. However, the rainfall deficiency in West Rajasthan is 31% while East Rajasthan observed a rain surplus of 26%.

Eastern parts of Rajasthan including Ajmer, Kota, Bundi, Chittorgarh have received on and off good rains. Contrariwise, rains continued to miss the extreme western parts of the state.

Due to the cyclonic circulation dominant over West Madhya Pradesh and adjoining East Rajasthan, good rains are expected over eastern and southern parts of Rajasthan for the next 2  3 days.

In fact by July 27 and 28, scattered light to moderate rain is likely over many pockets of West Rajasthan but the intensity of rain will be higher over East Rajasthan.
