Rain in South and Saurashtra region under influence of cyclone VAYU but that in North Gujarat owing to western disturbances

Gandhinagar/Ahmedabad: In the past 24 hours ending at 0830 hrs this morning, a total of 108 talukas in Gujarat have experienced rainfall with Patan in North Gujarat recording the highest of almost 2 inches (45mm).

IMD center Director Jayant Sarkar said that there would be more spells of rain in next 3 days.

‘The rain in Southern Gujarat and Saurashtra Kutch region could be attributed to the approaching cyclone VAYU, but the rain in Northern part of Gujarat won’t be due to it. Infact the rain in Northern part of the state would be caused by the presence of western disturbances,’ he added.
