Rajasthan rain 2

The winter rains that were absent so far from the plains of Northwest India finally appeared last night. Most parts of the region including the desert state of Rajasthan too observed few spells.

In fact, light showers have been drenching the state since Monday night that continued in the morning as well. However, these rains remained mainly confined to the northern and eastern parts of Rajasthan, while the rest of the stations remained dry.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Monday, the stations such as Pilani, Ajmer, Sriganganagar, Sikar, and Hanumangarh recorded light rains. However, these showers spared the capital city of Jaipur.

According to Skymet Weather, these rains can be attributed to the passage of Western Disturbance that is presently seen over the Western Himalayan region. This weather system has induced a cyclonic circulation which can be seen over North Rajasthan and adjoining Haryana.

As reiterated by weathermen, whenever these two systems form together, they move in tandem and have a widespread effect in terms of rains over the parts of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Delhi and West Uttar Pradesh.

With these systems, the short spell of rains is expected to continue over Rajasthan today also.  But these showers would mainly remain confined to the northern and eastern parts of the state.

Thus, light rain and thundershowers may occur in some parts of the districts of Alwar, Bharatpur, Jhunjhunu, Sikar, Dausa, Karauli and Sawai Madhopur during the next 6 hours.

Because of these rains, the minimums have also scaled up marginally, bringing respite from chilly nights. However, after the passage of the weather system, the minimums are once again likely to dip as the cold northerly winds would make a comeback.

However, the ongoing rainy spell will be short-lived as the affecting system is likely to clear the region by tomorrow. Henceforth, the weather is likely to become dry by January 24.
