Gujarat experiences varied weather conditions in different parts of the state. Generally, the coastal stations witness low maximum temperatures as compared to the inland stations.
However, two days back, the coastal stations of Gujarat were recording day temperatures near 40°C. Places such as Veraval, Okha, Dwarka, Porbandar and Mangrol observed their maximum temperature above normal by 6 to 7 degrees.
The reason for such high temperatures over the region has been attributed to an anti-cyclone which was close to the coast of Gujarat. Due to this system, dry and warm winds were affecting the region.
Now the anti-cyclone has moved westwards and presently lies far away from the coast of Gujarat. Therefore, all the districts of Coastal Gujarat have witnessed drop in their day temperatures. Yesterday, the maximum temperature recorded for Okha was 30°C, followed by Dwarka 29.2°C.
Rest all parts of the state are still observing heatwave like condition with maximums settling around 40°C. Yesterday, Ahmedabad recorded its day temperature at 42°C, followed by Amreli 42°C, Bhuj 41.8°C, Baroda 41.6°C, Deesa 40.8°C, Surat 40.6°C and Bhavnagar 39.4°C.
These weather conditions are likely to remain the same for another two to three days. Heatwave like conditions will persist in most parts of Gujarat.
