Pre-monsoon showers bring down temperature in Rajasthan

Premonsoon rains brought some relief from the intense heat to several regions in Rajasthan. The rainfall activity that began on Thursday continued on Friday, with Sriganganagar recording the state’s maximum rainfall of 50.2 mm. The Met Office predicts that pre-monsoon rains continue to fall in Kota, Udaipur, Jaipur and Bikaner divisions over the next few days.

The rains have caused a major decrease in both maximum and minimum temperatures across the state, with an average drop of over 5 degrees Celsius.

It had been a beautiful morning in Jaipur, with a minimum temperature of 25.6°C, which was 2.2°C lower than normal. Along with mild to moderate afternoon rains, the city saw a high temperature of 37.4°C, which is 1.6°C below average. The Met office reports that 30.2 mm of rain fell in Jaipur overall.

Although the exact date and time of the monsoon’s arrival in Rajasthan cannot be anticipated, the conditions are ideal for it to arrive within the next three to four days, according to Radhey Shyam Sharma, director of the Jaipur Met office.

Despite the rainfall, Barmer remained the hottest place in the state, with a high temperature of 42.2°C. However, the Met Office has confirmed that the state’s heat wave has ended and a majority of areas will get mild to moderate rains until June 25.
