New Delhi, The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a weather alert for various regions in Rajasthan, predicting rainfall and thunderstorms over the next 48 hours. This forecast is attributed to the activation of a western disturbance, with expectations of light to moderate rain in Jodhpur, Bikaner, Jaipur, and Bharatpur divisions. Additionally, isolated hailstorms are anticipated in West Rajasthan on February 3 and East Rajasthan on February 4.
Rajgarh reported the highest rainfall at 10 mm, followed by Sardarshahar and Fatehpur at 6 mm each. The IMD links these conditions to a new western disturbance set to influence the region on February 3 and 4.
In a separate development, the IMD has decided to discontinue services for 199 district agromet units, impacting farmers across 32 states and Union Territories. These units provided critical weather-related advisories at the block level, aiding farmers in minimizing crop losses and increasing income. This decision follows a reevaluation of the necessity for staffing each unit.
