Monsoon 2022 remained generous for Rajasthan until now. Rajasthan is surplus by 35%. West Rajasthan which is considered as arid region has witnessed 60% surplus rain. On the other hand, east Rajasthan remained surplus by 20%.
Now westerly dry winds are blowing over most parts of the state. Humidity will reduce and weather will remain almost dry. Due to bright sunshine, there may be marginal increase in day temperatures, however night temperature may reduce. The normal date of withdrawal of monsoon from what Rajasthan is September 17. This year there may be delayed withdrawal from Rajasthan of around one week.
Reason for surplus rain over western districts of Rajasthan can be attributed to the number of low-pressure areas which traveled across Central India and reached over south and Southwest Rajasthan. Almost all the weather systems have given heavy rain.
Contrasting rain activities has been witnessed over the state. Northwestern districts such as Sri Ganganagar, Hanumangarh, Churu, Bikaner, Jhunjhunu, Sikar, Alwar and Bharatpur witnessed below normal rain. Whereas Jaisalmer, Barmer, Jodhpur, Phalodi, Jhalawar, Kota, Bundi, Baran and Chittorgarh recorded flooding rain.
