As had been forecast earlier Rajasthan is set to witness a fresh spell of Pre-Monsoon weather activity starting today. The reason for this upcoming spell is the formation of an induced Cyclonic Circulation over Northwest parts of the state. Moreover, humid winds from Arabian Sea are also feeding moisture over Northern Plains up to 15000 feet.
Already the cloud cover had increased and spread over many regions of Rajasthan. Western and northwestern parts of Rajasthan are witnessing cloudy to partly cloudy weather.
Today afternoon, many parts of the state are set to receive thunderstorm and dust storm activities accompanied with light rains. Gradually the intensity and spread of these rains will increase and many parts of Rajasthan will be covered. Initially, northwestern parts of Rajasthan will be the ones seeing rains. However, soon enough, south west and eastern regions will also see rain, dust storm, thunderstorm as well as lightning activities.
Only a few districts adjacent to Gujarat may witness dry weather during this time.
This fairly widespread dust storm and thunderstorm activity is expected to continue over Rajasthan during the next four to five days i.e. up to May 17. After which, the weather will start clearing up.
