These rains as per Skymet Weather can be attributed to the trough that is extending from West Rajasthan to the Bay of Bengal. A cyclonic circulation is also seen over South Pakistan. Gradually, the low-pressure area which is over Odisha coast will move towards Madhya Pradesh. Due to its westerly movement, districts of southeast Rajasthan such as Kota, Bundi, and Udaipur will witness moderate rain and thundershowers with the possibility of one or two heavy spells around July 19 and 20.

However, many districts of southeast Rajasthan will receive scattered light to moderate rains for the next 2 days. Furthermore, within another 3-4 days, rain activities over East Rajasthan will remain more in contrast with rains over West Rajasthan. Hence, districts such as Kota, Bundi, and Udaipur are more likely to witness more rains as compared with districts such as Barmer, Jaisalmer, and Nagore. Jaipur may also witness rains but they will be patchy in nature.

As on July 16, West Rajasthan is 67% rainfall surplus while the rainfall status for East Rajasthan on the same date is near normal and is 5% surplus. With these rains, the rain status is expected to enhance.
