Gujarat had been witnessing deficient rains throughout this Monsoon season. As on September 10, the rainfall deficiency for Saurashtra and Kutch region had mounted to 28%, while Gujarat region is witnessing deficiency of 21%.


With the delayed arrival of Monsoon, Gujarat began the season with deficit rains. However, moderate to heavy rains during the second and third week of August covered up the deficiency and brought state to rain surplus status.

Thereafter, Monsoon went subdued over the entire state with few on and off light rains only that too remained confined to southern and eastern districts only. With this, the western state again slipped into rainfall deficiency.

Situation has not improved during the ongoing month of September as well and past 24 hours also recorded isolated light rains only. Amreli recorded rains to the tune of 5 mm, Bhuj 2 mm and Rajkot mere 1 mm.

These rains could be attributed to the cyclonic circulation that persisted over the northern parts of Gujarat and adjoining Rajasthan.

As per weathermen at Skymet Weather, this weather feature has now become less marked. Thus, the weather conditions are all set to once again go dry over Gujarat.

However, isolated rains of light intensity cannot be ruled out. But then these showers would not improve the current rain deficiency. Thereby, we can say that Monsoon is going to end on a deficit note for Gujarat.
