Rain In Rajasthan

The state of Rajasthan is one of the least rainy pockets, wherein Gujarat doesn’t receive any rain activity during winters. In the past 24 hours, fairly widespread rainfall, mostly light with few moderate showers have been observed over Jaisalmer, Barmer, Bikaner, Sriganganagar, Hanumangarh, Jaipur, Ajmer and Alwar.

Rajasthan witnesses rain activity during fag end of January and February, when the Western Disturbances and their induced cyclonic circulations tracks southward.

This present spell is the first spell which has almost covered most parts of Rajasthan, right from north to south and west to east. The extreme southern districts of Rajasthan like Banswara, Udaipur, Dungarpur, Chittorgarh, Pratapgarh, Sirohi and Bhilwara are the least rainy districts since they share their boundary with Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. In the coming 24 hours, a major portion of Rajasthan would be covered with light rains. The eastern parts of Rajasthan like Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Barmer close to the proximity of Delhi and NCR would witness light rains. From the southern part of Rajasthan, the rains have already started vacating. The extreme northern parts of Rajasthan adjoining Punjab and Haryana would witness moderate spell of rains and the possibility of hailstorm cannot be ruled out.

The day temperatures would drop down and the minimums would go up, attributing to these rains. Pan Rajasthan would witness cloudy weather with windy conditions in offing. Places like Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Phalodi would witness windy conditions wherein the wind speed would touch 30-35 km/hr. Tomorrow onward, we would start finding clearance and by February 22, total clearance would be there.

The northern districts of Rajasthan adjoining Punjab and Haryana like Sriganganagar, Hanumangarh and Suratgarh started receiving rains early winters itself. As of today, West Rajasthan is rain deficit by just 3%, East Rajasthan is deficit by 20%. A skewed rain distribution pattern has been observed in Rajasthan, i.e. simultaneously, rains didn’t cover the major areas.
