Rajasthan does not usually record rains during this time of the year and thus the last night’s rainy spells that occurred in Rajasthan after almost a month-long dry spell can be termed as unusual. Though these rainy spells were mainly confined to the southeastern districts of Rajasthan.

Districts such as Kota, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Tonk, Bundi, Ajmer, Jhalawar, Bhilwara and Sawai Madhopur recorded some light traces of rains. In fact, light rains showed upon the state today morning as well.

The reason for these unusual rains can be associated with the cyclonic storm Ockhi that has already wreaked havoc in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. As per Skymet Weather, Cyclone Ockhi that was a severe Cyclone until yesterday has continued to move in a north-northeast direction towards Gujarat.

At present, the system lies over east-central Arabian Sea, about 390 km south-southwest of Surat and 230 km west-southwest of Mumbai. The system is likely to continue moving in a north-northeast direction and will cross South Gujarat and adjoining North Maharashtra coast as a Deep Depression by tonight.

While its process of further weakening, some band of clouds are expected to extend from the inner circle of the Cyclone resulting in an increase in the cloud cover. Thus, the peripherals of this weather system are likely to give rains over Rajasthan, particularly over the eastern and southeastern districts of the state, which are adjacent to west Madhya Pradesh.

Though the other regions of the state will also record some rains, the intensity of these showers is expected to be lesser in contrast with the east and southeast Rajasthan.

Thus, the stations such as Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Kota, and Jhalawar are expected to record some moderate showers but stations such as Jaipur, Ajmer, Alwar, Sikar and Dausa are likely to get light spells. As per Skymet Weather, these unusual rains are expected to continue in Rajasthan for at least another 24 hours and are likely to ease out thereafter.
