Gujarat has been witnessing light Monsoon rains for the last many days and no major change was seen the situation during past day as well. Within the span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Mahuva recorded 24 mm of rains, Veraval 5 mm, Valsad 4 mm, and Amreli 2 mm. Meanwhile, Rajkot and Surat recorded some traces only.


As per Skymet Weather, there are no big hopes for the state as of now also, at least for a week. While the trail of weather systems kept affecting the neighbouring states, causing flooding rains, Gujarat remained unaffected.

Weathermen predict some light to moderate rains for the southern stations of the state such as Veraval, Bhavnagar, and Valsad only.

Meanwhile, the rain intensity over Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Surat, Okha, and Dwarka would remain mostly light. Rains are expected to pick up the pace by July 12 or 13, making the weekend hopeful and better for the westernmost state of the country.

If we take a look at the rainfall performance of both the sections of the state, Saurashtra and Kutch region has been the major sufferer. However, rainfall performance of Gujarat region is close to normal. As on July 8, Gujarat region is 18% rainfall deficit, while Saurashtra and Kutch region is highly rain deficit by 77%.

Gujarat has been one of the most affected states this Southwest Monsoon. Firstly, Monsoon arrival was delayed by days and secondly, even after the arrival of Monsoon, barring one or two instances, rains have remained on a lower side.

This is the reason that the overall performance of the state remained rather poor. As per Skymet Weather, all the three adjoining states namely, Rajasthan, West Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra have been experiencing good amount of Monsoon showers. However, Gujarat pocket is highly rain deficit.

It is only parts of South Gujarat and the coastal stations sharing their boundaries with the Arabian Sea such as Valsad, Bharuch, and Surat observing some heavy rains. Meanwhile, North and Central Gujarat, along with parts of Saurashtra and Kutch region have received light rains or had remained dry.
