Crop damage in Rajasthan

The month of February is the leanest period in terms of winter rains for the state of Rajasthan. During this time, the state experiences light spells of rain, with intensity remaining more over western parts than the eastern parts of the state.

However, this February, a different scenario has been noticed. The winter rains have made an appearance more frequently over parts of West Rajasthan such as Jaisalmer, Barmer and Jodhpur than parts of East Rajasthan such as Ajmer, Alwar and Jaipur.

According to Skymet Weather, the state of Rajasthan will witness another spell of rain and hailstorm activities starting tonight and continuing till February 22. This will occur in wake of the Western Disturbance moving over northern parts of the country and its induced Cyclonic Circulation over parts of Rajasthan. Moreover, different parts of the state will witness different intensities of rain.

The southern parts of Rajasthan will witness light rains starting today. The places adjacent to Gujarat such as Dungarpur, Banswara and Udaipur will get the touch of these rains. In fact, clouding has already started over these places and rains will begin here anytime soon.

On the other hand, western, eastern as well as northern parts of Rajasthan will experience rains February 19 onward. During this time, places such as Jaisalmer, Barmer, Jodhpur, Hanumangarh, Sri Ganganagar, Suratgarh, Ajmer, Alwar and Jaipur will get covered by the rain belt.

These activities will pick up a pace on February 20 and we expect intense heavy spells to lash over parts of North Rajasthan such as Hamunagarh and Sri Ganganagar. There are also bright chances of hailstorm in these places.

By February 21, intensity of rains will slowly reduce and rains will start vacating the state from February 21. However, a complete clearance in the weather will occur on February 23.

In wake of these rains, night temperatures are expected to increase while day maximums will witness a fall. The wind pattern will also undergo a change, as humid winds from Arabian sea will start blowing over the region.

Although rains are considered good for the growth and nourishment of crops such as Wheat, Barley and Legume, but heavy hailstorm might result in damage of these crops.
