JAIPUR : Jaipur is gearing up for a change in weather as post-monsoon rains are anticipated to begin on October 15. A Met department official said that an active Western Disturbance currently affecting North India may cause rains, leading to the drop in temperature.

Following this, two consecutive weather systems are set to sweep through the region, impacting several states including Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Western Uttar Pradesh, and the northern parts of Rajasthan.

Weather experts predict that the Western Disturbance’s influence will be felt in Rajasthan around October 14-15.

Tomorrow afternoon, Ganganagar and Hanumangarh areas may witness cloudy skies, with rain expected to commence on October 15. As these weather systems progress, other districts like Jhunjhunu, Sikar, Bikaner, Alwar, Nagaur, Ajmer, and Jaipur may also experience cloudy conditions and light rain.

Due to these weather systems, high-altitude regions can expect snowfall. By October 20-21, cold winds from North India will reach the plains, causing a significant drop in night temperatures in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, North Rajasthan, and North-West Uttar Pradesh. This marks the onset of winter in these regions.

Already, the influence of the Western Disturbance has led to temperature fluctuations in various cities of Rajasthan.

Minimum night temperatures have risen in Sikar and Udaipur. Sirohi recorded the lowest temperature last night at 16.5 degrees Celsius, while Hanumangarh in western Rajasthan reported 19.2 degrees Celsius.

Cities like Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Jodhpur, Phalodi, Pilani, and Ajmer saw temperatures above 24 degrees Celsius. Phalodi experienced the hottest day yesterday, reaching a maximum temperature of 39 degrees Celsius.
