Forecasting Heavy Rains: Preparing for Stormy Rainfall Rice Production. Ambal Patel, an opposition leader, warns of an impending defeat and possible collapse in the state. Read more for preparation.
Gujarat health officer Ambalal Patel has advised the police to warn about the upcoming monsoon season in Gujarat. Like Patel’s party, the entire country, including Gujaratis, is in the same condition. With the formation of a low-pressure system over the Bay of Bengal on 14 July, a third stormy onset of rains begins on 20 July, which is suspicious and problematic.
Meteorological Department’s Rainfall Forecast
The Meteorological Department has given an insight into the expected rainfall pattern. It has predicted heavy rainfall in Gir Somnath, Junagadh, Porbandar, Amreli and Bhavnagar districts and the intensity of rainfall will increase over the entire state after July 18.
Districts prone to heavy rains
Ambalal Patel’s forecasts indicate that the first deep depression of the monsoon season will arrive between July 18-19 and 20. Heavy to very heavy rains are expected in Gujarat from July 23 to 30. This deep depression is expected to affect the entire country. There is a possibility of heavy rain in Gujarat. Heavy to very heavy rains may occur in some parts of the state.
Effects on river levels and dams
Ambalal Patel indicates the possibility of flooding in northeastern parts of the country due to heavy rainfall. The water level of the Ganga River may rise, leading to possible flood conditions. Additionally, heavy to very heavy rains are expected over parts of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, which will increase the water level in the Sabarmati river in Ahmedabad. Moreover, there is a possibility of increased water revenue in the Narmada river, the lifeblood of Gujarat, which will probably reach the height of Sardar Sarovar Dam.
Ambalal Patel’s prediction
Ambalal Patel, a respected meteorologist, reinforces the need to be prepared for the approaching monsoon season. They suggest that July could see an unprecedented monsoon, with heavy to very heavy rains expected after July 17. Patel cited the possibility of a deep depression forming over the Bay of Bengal, which would increase the intensity of rainfall and blanket the state with cloud cover. While the second round of rains was already stormy, the third round is predicted to be more intense with unprecedented rainfall.
Third round of rain: call for caution
Ambalal Patel’s forecast sheds light on the state’s climate. Cyclonic circulation and low pressure are expected to bring heavy rains from July 23 to 30. The first deep depression of monsoon season is expected on 18-19 and 20 July. This depression will strengthen, resulting in widespread rainfall across the country including Gujarat.
Heavy to very heavy rainfall may occur in some parts of the state. As the depression deepens, the flow of the Sabarmati river will increase, affecting parts of central Gujarat and north Gujarat with rainfall of 4 to 8 inches. In contrast, parts of South Gujarat may receive 10-12 inches of rain.
Ambalal Patel’s prediction serves as a crucial warning to the people of Gujarat, urging them to prepare for the upcoming monsoon season. With heavy rain and possible flooding forecast, it’s important to stay updated with weather warnings and take the necessary precautions to ensure safety.
