Rajasthan has experienced a promising start to this year's monsoon season, with an 18% increase in rainfall compared to the same period last year. Despite this overall improvement, concerns persist as nine districts in the state continue to face rainfall deficits as of July 9, 2024, according to the Meteorological Office in Jaipur.

The Meteorological Office has issued forecasts predicting heavy rainfall in several divisions including Jaipur, Kota, Bharatpur, Ajmer, and Udaipur over the next 24 hours. This comes as part of continued variability across the state, with abnormal rainfall reported in eleven districts and excess rainfall in thirteen others.

The Meteorological Office reported that Rajasthan has received an average rainfall of 101.9mm up to July 9, 2024, surpassing last year's 85.3mm during the same timeframe. Some districts, however, still lag behind in precipitation.

Malrana Dungar in Sawai Madhopur recorded the highest rainfall at 85mm, followed closely by Sambhar in Jaipur with 78mm.

District-wise Rainfall

Dholpur stands out with an impressive 268.6mm of rainfall so far, compared to just 111.5mm last year. Conversely, Jaisalmer has received the lowest rainfall at 32.1mm, slightly less than the 35.42mm recorded in 2023.

Challenges Ahead

Despite overall improvements, districts such as Balotra, Jalore, Phalodi, Pratapgarh, Salumbar, Sanchore, and Sirohi have experienced deficits in rainfall, posing challenges for agriculture and water management in these areas.
