As per weathermen, a cyclonic circulation lies over South Coastal Gujarat and adjoining regions at lower troposphere. Simultaneously, an offshore trough is extending from Maharashtra Coast to Kerala Coast. Due to the presence of these combined weather systems, moist winds are affecting many regions of Gujarat. During the next 24 to 36 hours, light to moderate rain will continue to occur over the eastern and central parts of Gujarat. Thus, Ahmedabad, Mehsana, Patan, Junagarh, Amreli, and Rajkot are expected to witness light to moderate Monsoon rains.
However, the southern districts will receive moderate to heavy rains during the next 24 to 36 hours. Therefore, places like Valsad, Navsari, Surat, Diu, Bhavnagar, and Vadodara are likely to receive moderate to heavy rains.
As per Skymet Weather, after 36 hours, the rain intensity will increase over the eastern parts of Gujarat. Thus, by the night of July 17 hefty Monsoon rains will pave in over the eastern districts of Gujarat. Subsequently, rains will be shifting westwards over to the central districts and Saurashtra region in the form of moderate to heavy rains. Meanwhile, weather across Kutch will remain dry and warm.
