Rajasthan has been battling with scorching summer heat for the last many days. So much so that a few locations have been recording sweltering mercury levels settling near the 45-degree mark.
Though some isolated dust storm or thunderstorms along with patchy rains were reported in some parts of Rajasthan on the past day, these pre-Monsoon activities were not able to pull the temperatures down as they occurred mostly during the later afternoon hours.
Within the span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Friday, Sawai Madhopur recorded 1 mm of light spells and Udaipur 0.6 mm of rains. Meanwhile, Kota, Chittorgarh, and Barmer recorded some light traces of rains.
A fresh Western Disturbance is expected to approach the Western Himalayan region in the next 24 hours. This would induce a cyclonic circulation over Central and adjoining North Rajasthan.
Southwesterly strong winds are also expected to hover over most of the southwestern parts of Rajasthan. In the wake of this, the dry and warm weather would continue to prevail over the region for the next 48 hours. Thus, stations like Barmer, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Phalodi, Jaipur, and Jalore would continue to witness warm weather conditions.
On the other hand, isolated dust storm activities are also possible over the extreme northern parts of the state in places like Sri Ganganagar and Hanumangarh within the next 24 hours.
