July 28, 2016 3:05 PM |

Rain in RajasthanRain saga continues over Rajasthan as Monsoon remains active over the desert state. Few places have also recorded heavy rains during the last 24 hours.

According to Skymet Weather, fairly widespread light to moderate rains have been recorded across the state. These rains can be attributed to the several weather systems affecting the weather over Rajasthan.

The cyclonic circulation over Northwest Madhya Pradesh and East Rajasthan continues to prevail over the region. While, the axis of Monsoon trough is also running through Phalodi.

While the former system has been pounding rains over South Rajasthan, the later one has been giving good showers over North Rajasthan.

For instance, Sriganganagar has recorded 91 mm of rain in span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday. This is the highest rainfall recorded during the 24 hours in last 10 years. It has also covered the 90% of its monthly average rainfall of 99.2 mm.

Further, the circulation is likely to move northwards along the Monsoon trough. In wake of this, good rains will continue over the parts of South and Southeast Rajasthan during the next 2-3 days. Few parts of the state will also see heavy spells. Places like Udaipur, Kota, Jhalawar and Chittorgarh will see rains of varying intensity.

Following are the rainfall figures recorded across the state:
