Unseasonal Rains Coming Up For Gujarat, Wet Weekend Likely

November 21, 2023 2:12 PM |

State of Gujarat is likely to have scattered rains during the approaching weekend.  Nearly all parts of the state will get showers, albeit of varying spread and intensity. Weather gods will be more courteous for south and central Gujarat while the rest may be somewhat stingy. More rains are likely on Sunday as compared to Saturday and recede thereafter at start of next week.

Gujarat remains largely dry between December and April. Hardly any storm come closer to the state in December. Also, the winter systems of both north and south keep a safe distance from the state. Therefore, only some freak situation may give some sprinkle during this period but chances are next to ‘none’.  Month of November does receive some startling showers, as and when some tropical storm from the Arabian Sea  strays towards the coastline.  This season, the storm is not likely in November but a very uncommon situation developing in the proximity of the state will lead to unseasonal rains over large parts of the state.

An extension of trough line along the West Coast from Kerala and Coastal Karnataka right up to Konkan and Goa will be instrumental for embedding a cyclonic circulation off the coast of South Gujarat and Saurashtra.   This feature emerging over Gulf of Cambay and neighbourhood  will trigger unexpected rains on the weekend, on 25th and 26thNov 2023. The circulation will weaken on 27thNov and nearly extinct the next day on 28thNov. Therefore, the remnant effect will still be seen on these two days, more so for South Gujarat and South Saurashtra, on 27thNov.

On 25th and 26th, the prominent locations having decent showers will include Vapi, Valsad, Navsari, Surat, Anklesvar, Bharuch, Dang and Tapi.  Scattered showers will also make their way to Vadodara, Anand, Kheda, Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad.  North Gujarat and most parts of Saurashtra & Kutch will have to bear with light showers across and moderate only at few places.  Clear sky with fair amount of sunshine can be expected over most parts of the state from 28thNov onward.
