Gujarat is witnessing extreme changes in weather this year due to Western Disturbance. However, the Meteorological Department (MD) has said that the impact of Western Disturbance has been gradually removed from Gujarat. There will be no possibility of unseasonal rain in the coming days. Besides, it is likely that the weather will be dry in Gujarat after 24 hours. According to the MD, the temperature is likely to shoot up in coming days.
It may be recalled that Vijin Lal, Scientist, Ahmedabad Meteorological Center predicted about weather including unseasonal rain for five days in the state. He predicted the weather to remain dry for the last three days. According to his forecast, light rain is likely to occur in 4-5 districts of the state today i.e. May 6-7, after which the day temperature will rise.
MD has predicted for 3 to 4 degrees rise in temperature at some parts of North Gujarat and Saurashtra for next 2-3 days. The temperature may shoot up to 40 degrees or more at many places in the state in coming days. Aravalli including Banas kantha and Saba kantha of North Gujarat and Narmada, Dang and Tapi of South Gujarat may experience rain or thundershowers today. Unseasonal rain has been also predicted for Amreli and Bhavnagar today.
According to the MD, state has been relieved from possibility of unseasonal rain, but The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued warnings regarding a potential cyclonic storm forming in the Bay of Bengal from Saturday onwards. Due to the IMD warning, several states across the country are on high alert, with local disaster response teams ready to respond in case of any emergency. The IMD has issued forecast for heavy rain in
Chennai and surrounding areas.
However, the direction of the cyclone will be tracked in the coming days. According to the MD, it is too early to say whether this cyclone will affect Gujarat or not, as accurate information including its speed can be obtained only after the formation of a depression or low-pressure.
