Rajasthan Rains

Yesterday, extremely hot weather conditions were experienced over parts of Rajasthan, with all-time high maximum temperature recorded by Churu at 50.8 degree Celsius. In fact, Sri Ganganagar was not far behind and recorded its day temperature at 49.6 degrees Celsius.

On May 19, 2016 - Phalodi recorded the all the time highest temperature at 51.0 degrees Celsius. Thus, 50.8-degree Celsius day temperature recorded by Churu was the second all-time highest maximum temperature recorded in the history of India.

All-time high temperatures recorded by various places of Rajasthan are as follows– Alwar, 50.6˚C on May 10, 1956, Phalodi, 50.5˚C on May 18, 2016, Churu, 50.2˚C on May 19, 2016, Sri Ganganagar, 50.0˚C on June 14, 1934 and Dholpur 50.0˚C on June 3, 1995.

So now in the coming four to five days, heat wave conditions will continue over many parts of India with severe heat wave conditions in parts of Rajasthan, as we do not expect any change in the wind direction. Winds will continue to blow from west/northwest direction which are warm and humid in nature, leading to hot weather.

However, isolated dust storm activity followed by patchy rain and thundershower activities cannot be ruled out. But as these weather activities will be pre-Monsoon rains, they will occur during the late evening hours and not have much effect on temperatures.

Thus, we can say that temperatures over most places of Rajasthan will remain in high-40’s, leading to heat wave and severe heat wave condition in parts of the state for another four to five days at least. Although a Western Disturbance is expected to reach the Western Himalayas around June 3, its impact will only be felt up to Punjab and Rajasthan will not witness any significant weather activity.
