Scattered light rain is being witnessed over South and Southeast Rajasthan for the past two days. The weather in most parts of Rajasthan is cloudy with medium and high clouds.
In most of the places, the day temperature is below normal by two to five degrees and minimums are above normal by three to five degrees.
According to our meteorologists, the cloud cover is responsible for this low day temperature, while on the other hand, it is also responsible for the greenhouse effect which has led to a rise in minimums.
The month of October is one of the driest months for Rajasthan and after the departure of Southwest Monsoon the day temperature increases. October is also considered as the second summer fort the state due to continuous bright sunshine and clear sky. However, this year has been an exception because intermittent rains have occurred in the state.
Cyclone Kyarr was responsible for rainfall activities and now the present spell of rain is a result of moisture incursion from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. We expect scattered rains to continue over western parts along with south and southeastern parts of Rajasthan up to November 2. At present, a Cyclonic Circulation is over West Rajasthan and adjoining Pakistan. The combination of the Cyclonic Circulation and moisture-laden winds from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal will be responsible for this fresh spell of rain.
As of October 29, both east and west Rajasthan are rain surplus by a huge margin of 107% and 148%, respectively.
