New Delhi (NVI): The weather has completely changed in many cities in Rajasthan as intermittent rains have started there due to a cyclonic system over the state due to western disturbance in northern India.

According to SkymetWeather, rains are expected in the western Indian state in the coming days. The state has witnessed a good spell of rains in the pre-monsoon season. However, the precipitation has not favored the farmers in the state as crops have received damage due to hailstorm.

The weather remained clear yesterday but rain activities are expected from today in Churu and Ganganagar. The weather monitor also forecasts that rains may continue on March 24, 25 as well and will further intensify on March 26 and 27.

During March 26 and 27, the western parts of Rajasthan including Churu, Ganganagar, Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Sawai Madhopur, Udaipur, and Kota may receive heavy showers. State capital Jaipur may also receive rains during this time.

So these places in the western part of the state may also affect crops as hailstorm is also expected, the report said.

The weather monitor has also warned the farmers and people in the region to remain alert and take care of their cattle as thunderstorms and lightning is also expected along with rain activity.

In the last 24 hours, many parts of South and West Rajasthan have also been experiencing light to moderate rain and thundershowers.

These rains can also be considered as ‘unseasonal’ rains as, during the month of March, rainfall activities occur in the wake of Western Disturbance.

The rainfall activities will lead to a marginal drop in temperature by 3 to 4 degrees Celsius. And, the maximum temperatures will start increasing after March 27.

Meanwhile, the state of Madhya Pradesh will also observe light to moderate rain and thundershowers.

In Delhi, the minimum temperature today was recorded at 16 degrees Celsius.

However, the maximum and minimum temperatures are expected to rise over the next few days, according to IMD.
