The months of January and February are considered to be the winter months for the entire country. However, the state of Gujarat only witnesses mild winters due to its geographical location but on few occasions, the state does experience chills.
February’s second half onward, most parts of Gujarat start observing warm afternoons along with pleasant mornings and nights. This also indicates the commencement of summer season over the state.
As we saw on February 20, the maximum temperature over most places of the state exceeded 35˚C. Ahmedabad had recorded its day temperature at 36˚C, followed by Rajkot 36.1˚C, Vadodara 37.5˚C, Surendranagar 36.3˚C and Amreli 37.5˚C. This sudden rise in maximums clearly indicated the upcoming summer season with hot day conditions.
However, after that temperatures retreated to normal due to the continuous weather activities going over the hills and plains of North India. Now in the coming days also we expect both day and night temperatures of Gujarat to remain near normal as another Western Disturbance and its induced cyclonic circulation will be affecting the northern hills and plains.
In addition to this, on March 3 and 4, we also expect clouding in some areas of Gujarat such as Saurashtra and Kutch. This clouding may also lead to short spell of light rain.
Thus, we can say that in the wake of rains over North India, Gujarat will continue to witness maximums near normal. However, after the clearance of weather, day temperatures will shoot up marking the commencement of summers over the state.
