"Predominance of dry climate is likely over western Rajasthan from tomorrow. Decrease in the dampness related with the storm stream and a changeover in the low level breeze design are likewise likely over this area from 27th September. These are characteristic of the presumable initiation of withdrawal of Southwest storm from western Rajasthan around 29th September," said the figure.

Regularly, the storm starts its withdrawal from the first seven day stretch of September, however it has been postponed essentially because of the advancement of cyclonic conditions.

Jharkhand, Bihar, Saurashtra and Kutch, Rayalseema and north inside Karnataka are among the subdivisions that have enrolled a shortfall of more prominent than 25%.
