The state of Gujarat sees the least weather activity during the Pre Monsoon season, particularly in the month of April. Moreover, there are no rains, dust storms, or lightning activities. However, during this time, Gujarat is one of the hottest pockets in the country which has been the case presently wherein some parts are seeing heatwave conditions and the conditions will remain the same.
Heatwave conditions have been persistent in some areas of Gujarat. Temperatures have been settling above the threshold of 40-degrees, being at least 4 to 5 degrees above normal.
For instance, Bhuj saw its maximum at 42°C, Deesa 41.6°C, Kandla 40.6°C, Rajkot 41.7°C, Ahmedabad 41.3°C, and Amreli 41°C.
Now, these conditions will continue for at least the next three days or so. Thereafter, marginal relief in the interior areas is likely. A feeble Western Disturbance is likely to approach the Western Himalayan region. Thus, with the passage of this system, winds which are northeasterly in nature, blowing from hotter areas of Pakistan, will change their pattern and become westerly, i.e., start blowing from the sea.
Therefore, weather although will remain hot, but heatwave conditions will abate from the region around the weekend.
The state has a long coastline due to which there is variation in weather conditions as far as the interior and the coastal regions are concerned. The coastal parts which includes Dwarka, Okha, Naliya, Porbandar, Veraval see warm and humid weather.
Meanwhile, the interiors including Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Amreli, Bhuj and Vadodara observe severe weather in terms of heat. Heatwave makes an appearance starting March and becomes all the more frequent during April. Temperatures exceeding the 40-degree mark becomes a common affair during this time.
