Maximum temperatures in Gujarat and Maharashtra are in the thirties. South Gujarat parts of Kutch, Konkan and Goa and parts of Vidarbha are the warmest as of now. Although the month of November and December do not witness any significant rain activities over these States, but northerly and northeasterly cool and dry winds tend to drop the temperatures. Until now, we have not seen any strong Western disturbance approaching Western Himalayas which would have dumped heavy snowfall. That is why, the northerly and north easterly winds do not have the required cooling impact.
We do not expect any significant relief for these states during the next few days. However, minimum may drop over parts of Gujarat and Vidarbha from December 6 or 7. This fall though, in temperature will not be enough to bring the winter chill. Drop in minimum is essential for Rabi crops.
Weather is expected to remain dry for at least next one week for Gujarat and Maharashtra. There is a silver lining as scattered light rain activities are possible over parts of Maharashtra and Gujarat between December 10 and 13. The depression which is developing over Bay of Bengal will crossover to Arabian Sea and gradually move in North Northwest direction. A trough may develop from west Central Arabian Sea to South Gujarat leading to these rain activities. We must wait and see how things Pan out in next one week or so.
