Monsoon has not yet reached Rajasthan, due to which dry and hot weather conditions have been prevailing over the state for last many days. However, during the last 24 hours, scattered light to moderate pre-monsoon activities were witnessed over few pockets.
In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Sunday, Mount Abu recorded heavy rain to the tune of 36 mm, followed by Sikar 21 mm, Jodhpur 13 mm, Phalodi 11 mm, Erinpura 3 mm, and Udaipur 2 mm. Sri Ganganagar and Jaipur too witnessed traces of rain.
These rainfall activities have been attributed to the cyclonic circulation seen over South Gujarat region. Now, as the humid winds from Arabian Sea are increasing moisture over parts of Rajasthan, we expect intensity of rains to increase over southern districts during the next 24-48 hours.
Thereafter, rains may reduce with the system fading away but scattered light rain with one or two moderate spells will continue over few parts of Rajasthan.
However, onset of Monsoon will not happen any time soon, but pre-monsoon showers are expected to pick up pace in the coming days leading to significant relief from hot weather conditions.
Few areas are also reeling under heatwave conditions, with most of the places recording their day temperatures above 40-degree mark. With this approaching rainy spell, mercury is likely to dip and maximum temperatures would settle between 35 – 38 degrees Celsius.
