Hot and dry westerly winds blowing over the region, under a clear sky, have been making matters worse. Moreover, temperatures are in mid-forties in most parts of Central Pakistan. Winds coming from these areas are also penetrating up to western parts of Rajasthan.

Forecast for Rajasthan

Some relief is likely after 48 hours as isolated rain and thunderstorm activity is likely over North and Central Rajasthan. All thanks to the cyclonic circulation over Rajasthan. However, it will not be enough to bring down the temperatures to a comfortable level. After June 25-26, the cyclonic circulation will interact with the system over the Arabian Sea, which could intensify into a low pressure area very soon. Maximums will then settle in the range of 35°C to 38°C.
