With a whopping 206 mm of rains, Naliya surpasses July average rainfall

July 31, 2019 4:38 PM |

Rain in Kutch

Naliya is the extreme western part of the country. Kutch district is the least rainy pocket right from Naliya, Mandvi to Bhuj. The entire Kutch district is an arid region and is surrounded by the Gulf of Kutch. In the past 24 hours, Bhuj and Naliya recorded 38 mm and 102 mm of rains, respectively.

According to meteorologists at Skymet, Kutch will now witness light rains with moderate spells in between for next two to three days. With the arrival of the new system which is very likely to brew in the Bay of Bengal will act as a catalyst and would then give torrential rains over the region.

Monsoon over here arrives late and withdraws early. The annual rainfall figures for Bhuj and Naliya are 323 mm and 326 mm respectively wherein 97% of rains are seen during the Monsoon season that is between June to September. While in the Monsoon season, 80% of rains are seen between July to August. The normal for Bhuj and Naliya for the month of July for these two regions is 131 mm and 156.5 mm, respectively. However, in July, Naliya and Bhuj have recorded 206 mm and 55 mm of rains, respectively. Hence, we can say that Naliya has surpassed the normal figures for the month of July.

This year June was practically dry for both the locations wherein Bhuj and Naliya recorded 3 mm and 1.7 mm of rains, respectively. Monsoon rains pay a visit to this region only when the Monsoon system travels through and through the central parts of the country and reaches Saurashtra and Kutch region. Similar is the case now which is helpful in giving rains over the region.

The performance over the Kutch region keeps varying. The variability is so high that only 6 mm of rains were recorded in the region in July 2012. While the highest rains for the month of July for this region have been recorded in 2009 of 552 mm when it was a severe drought year. Bhuj in July 2013 recorded just 2.2 mm of rain while the highest for this place till date in the last ten years was recorded in 2015 with 487.8 mm of rain. By these figures, we can say that Bhuj and Naliya are co-located but have high variabilities.
