Spelling more trouble for the farmers already reeling under crop losses due to the recent unseasonal showers in Gujarat, several parts of the state were once again lashed by rains in 24 hours till Thursday evening due to an ‘induced cyclonic circulation’, officials said.
As per the latest data shared by the Gujarat government on Thursday, isolated places in Saurashtra, Kutch and north Gujarat region received light to moderate rainfall in the last 24 hours (ending 8 pm on Thursday).
According to the officials of the MeT Centre here, some more rain is expected on Friday in these regions.
“Unseasonal rain in some parts of Gujarat can be attributed to an ‘induced cyclonic circulation’ over southwest Rajasthan. This system would bring rain at isolated places in Saurashtra, Kutch and north Gujarat on Friday too. Weather would become clear after November 16,” Director of the MeT centre, Jayanta Sarkar, said.
