Rajasthan has been receiving rains in terms of rain and hailstorm activities during the pre-monsoon season.
The first week of June seems to be rainy for many parts of Rajasthan as well as parts of northwest Madhya Pradesh. A western disturbance will be impacting Western Himalayas and induced cyclonic circulation will be over Pakistan and adjoining parts of West Rajasthan.
Moreover, humid winds from the Arabian Sea will be feeding moisture over the area. These multiple weather systems will be responsible for rain and thundershower activities over many parts of Rajasthan until June 4th.
The intensity of rain will be more on June 4th and 5th. Rain will be over many parts of the state except Southern districts. The intensity of rain will reduce significantly thereafter.
West Madhya Pradesh will receive rain on the fourth and fifth of June but intensity will be comparatively less than in Rajasthan. Southwest and East Madhya Pradesh will remain almost dry.
The temperature will start increasing over both states from June 6th onward heat wave will not make a comeback for at least the next 2 to 3 days.
Southwest monsoon has not kept its date over mainland Kerala, this season. It has overshot its scheduled date of 01st June and is lingering over the Bay of Bengal Islands.
The next stop over Kerala will happen only in the next week. The onset of the Southwest Monsoon over Kerala has stringent criteria. It is a combination of winds, clouds and rainfall over specified areas over the equatorial Indian Ocean, Lakshadweep Islands, the state of Kerala and coastal Karnataka.
The onset of monsoon over the various parts is depicted by the Northern Limit of Monsoon (NLM). The first burst of monsoon over the mainland mostly covers a major portion of Kerala, nearly half of Tamil Nadu, central & northeast BoB and stopping short of the northeastern states of Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura.
As per normal dates, the monsoon reaches Mumbai and Kolkata between the 10th and 12th of June. The monsoon arrival date for Delhi has now been revised to 27th June from its earlier landing on 29th June.
Delhi and suburbs witnessed yet another round of thunderstorm, lightening, strong winds and Moderate to heavy rains.
Delhiites can expect more showers till Friday, the 2nd June. Thereafter, the weather activity will be sparse and short lived too. Larger clearance is expected from 08th June onward.
Day and night temperatures have been persistently hovering below the normal for the last one week. Maximum and minimum temperature remained confined to about 35°C and 20°C, both about 5-6°C below the normal.
No heat wave conditions were observed at the record observatory. Last year, the capital city had breached 40°C mark on 20 days and the highest maximum exceeded 45°C.
Mercury will start rising from 3rd June onward but unlikely to exceed 40°C for the next 7 days. Rains are going to be far and few between 03rd and 10th June.
