At present, an active Western Disturbance as an upper air Cyclonic Circulation lies over the northern parts of Afghanistan and Pakistan region. With this, it's associated induced Cyclonic Circulation lies over the central parts of Pakistan region.
Both the systems will be moving east-northeastwards and due to the approaching of this system, the seasonal ridge of anti-cyclonic circulation has shifted southeastwards and now lies over the northern parts of Karnataka and adjoining parts of Maharashtra in the lower troposphere which is providing moist winds from the Arabian Sea over to the western parts of Rajasthan.
Due to the presence of these significant weather systems, the clouds will be increasing which will be further leading to light spell of rain and thundershowers in the western parts of Rajasthan. Places like Jaisalmer, Barmer, Jodhpur, Sri Ganganagar, and Bikaner may receive light rain during the same episode. The night temperature will also increase while the day temperature will decrease.
On January 13, the rainfall activity will be spreading over to many parts of West and North Rajasthan. Places like Hanumangarh, Sikar, Churu, Pilani, etc will be in the grip of these rains.
By January 14, the weather will start clearing up and the temperature pattern will also reverse as night temperature will decrease and the day temperature will increase marginally.
As another system will be affecting in quick succession, the western and the northern parts of the state will be again in the grip of rain and thundershower that is between January 15 to January 17. All these rains will be useful for the ruby crops, like, mustard, grams, and wheat. While the southern and the eastern parts of the state are very likely to remain dry.
