Meteorological Insight: Trough Formation in Arabian Sea Causes Unseasonal Rain in Gujarat

Ramashray Yadav, a scientist from the Meteorological Department, sheds light on the reason behind the unseasonal rain in Gujarat. According to Yadav, a trough has developed in the Arabian Sea over the past few days, and its trajectory is directing it towards Gujarat. As this trough progresses through South Gujarat, the state is expected to experience unseasonal cloudy and rainy weather.

This meteorological phenomenon holds particular significance as it coincides with the upcoming Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit. The convergence of numerous businessmen, both domestic and international, for the event adds another layer of concern. With a considerable portion of attendees likely to travel by air, the unseasonal rains and resultant cloudy weather are anticipated to impact air travel, potentially causing disruptions. As Gujarat prepares to host this significant event, careful monitoring of weather updates and proactive measures are imperative to mitigate the impact of the unexpected weather conditions on both the summit and air travel.
