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.
