Monsoon Rain in Rajasthan

The Southwest  Monsoon is still active in Southeast Rajasthan. In the past 24 hours, heavy rains have been recorded in Kota and Bundi wherein 85 mm and 76 mm of rains, respectively have been recorded.

Also, light to moderate rains occurred over Mount Abu, Udaipur, Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, and Jaipur.

Whereas, the weather of North and West Rajasthan remained dry. The Axis of Monsoon Trough is extending from Bikaner but winds at 7,000 feet are northwesterly over western parts of Rajasthan. Due to these dry winds, the moisture content in West Rajasthan is not high. Hence, the weather will continue to be dry over the parts of West Rajasthan in the coming days as well.

However, Southeast Rajasthan, as well as East Rajasthan, will continue to receive rains for another three to four days. However, rain activities are likely to take a dip over East Rajasthan as well.

This time the Monsoon withdrawal is already delayed by thirteen days and commencement of withdrawal is not likely to happen for another three to four days from West Rajasthan.

At present, the state of Rajasthan is rain surplus by 32% wherein East Rajasthan is excess by 41% and West Rajasthan is surplus by 16%. This tells us clearly that rain in Rajasthan will end on a surplus.

Kota, Bundi, Jhalawar, Bhilwara, Tonk, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Baran, and Sawai Madhopur are likely to receive moderate rains with isolated heavy spells for another 48 hours.

Last year West Rajasthan was deficient by 23% while East Rajasthan was surplus by 3%. The state ended with an overall deficiency of 6%. While this year rainfall in Rajasthan so far is already surplus by 32%, which clearly indicates how well the Monsoon has performed in comparison to the previous year.
