Unseasonal rains likely in north, central Gujarat: Met Dept

There will be cloudy weather and some parts of north and central Gujarat will receive unseasonal rains in the next 24 to 48 hours, the Meteorology Department’s forecast said on Friday.

Ahmedabad met centre in charge Dr. Manoma Mohanty told media that there will be little relief from the cold wave in some parts of the state, but the western region and Kutch are still likely to remain in its grip.

She said Ahmedabad had recorded a minimum of 13 degrees Celsius and Gandhinagar 12 degrees, and in next 24 hours, the minimum temperature in these cities are likely to be 16 and 17 degrees Celsius, respectively.

Forecasting cloudy weather, Mohanty said due to dry air moisture confluence, it creates a possibility of unseasonal rains in districts like Patan, Banaskantha, Sabarkantha, Aravalli, Dahod, Kheda, and Ahmedabad.

Due to the cold wave, a farmer died last night in Tintoi village of Aravalli district, while he was irrigating his farm. Modasa Taluka Police Station Officer told IANS that Lavji Patel died at his farm and police have registered it as an accidental death and are investigating.
