Rajasthan rains

Northwestern plains of the country are currently witnessing first widespread spell of winter rains of this season. Although late, but rains have finally managed to make an appearance over the region.

The weather activity has been significant in nature that almost all parts of Rajasthan has recorded rains of varying intensity. In fact, those areas that have the least probability of recording rains have also reported good rainfall activity. Besides this, few areas have also reported hailstorm.

According to Skymet Weather, Rajasthan usually receives occasional rains during the winter months that too when an active Western Disturbance induces a cyclonic circulation over Central Pakistan and adjoining Rajasthan. Even then also, most of the times rains remain confined to northern and southern districts.

But this time almost entire parts of the state have received rain and thundershowers with isolated hailstorm. All thanks to the active Western Disturbance which is one of the strongest systems of the season. Also, its induced cyclonic circulation over Pakistan and adjoining Rajasthan is also a prominent one. A trough is also running from this system up to Gujarat up to higher levels.

In span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday, Alwar recorded 14 mm, Chittorgarh 10 mm, Jaisalmer 8 mm, Sawai Madhopur 6 mm, Jaiur 4 mm, Phalaudi 4 mm, Bikaner 3 mm, Sikar 3 mm, and Barmer 2 mm.

Now, these weather systems are moving away eastwards. Therefore, we now expect rains to start clearing up from the state. However, isolated rains may continue over northern and eastern parts like Dholpur, Sikar, Jhunjunu, Alwar and Sawai Madhopur. By January 23, weather would clear up completely and sun would show up.

Winter chill to return

In wake of these ongoing rains, both day and night temperatures have already dropped. However, due to persistent cloud cover, weather has been largely comfortable during the nights.

But with systems clearing away, it would pave way for the chilly northwesterly winds blowing straight from snow clad Himalayas. As a result, we expect minimums to drop marginally over western districts of the state including Jaipur by tomorrow. By January 24, most areas will see significant drop in night temperatures. With this, we expect nights to be chilly in the coming week.

However, we expect maximums to increase now, making the days comfortable.
