Cyclone Biparjoy will provide rain to these states after making landfall

After making landfall, Cyclone Biparjoy will lose strength and proceed as a depression across south-southwest Rajasthan before drifting northeast.

Rainfall caused by Cyclone Biparjoy is likely across Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, New Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh during the next four days, according to weather forecasting firm Skymet.

After making landfall, Cyclone Biparjoy will lose strength and proceed as a depression across south-southwest Rajasthan before drifting northeast.

“By 18-19 June, the depression will be closer to Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, and northwest Uttar Pradesh. These places will receive light to moderate rain and wind speed is expected to be 30-40 km per hour,” said Skymet vice president Mahesh Palawat, reported by NDTV. 

“Whenever a cyclone is formed in the Bay of Bengal, it has the tendency to go in the northwest direction, leading to increased rain activity in the Indian mainland on the east coast,” Mr Palawat said. “However, weather systems over the Arabian Sea, usually move towards Yemen and Oman.

“This cyclonic storm, however, will move towards Pakistan and the west coast of India, leading to deficient rain in the central and eastern parts of the country. Over the next two weeks, we do not expect much rain over those parts. Coastal areas of south India, however, will experience rainfall.”

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Cyclone Biparjoy is now entirely disengaged from the monsoonal flow and will have no detrimental influence on the monsoon or its performance this year.

According to IMD Director Mrutyunjay Mohapatra, the cyclone aided the monsoon’s progress over the southern regions of the peninsula by enhancing cross-equatorial flow over the Arabian Sea.

“It is now completely separated from the monsoonal flow.” “We do not expect any significant impact on monsoon advance or performance,” Mr Mohapatra said, according to news agency PTI.

Cyclone Biparjoy is predicted to make landfall near Jakhau port in Kutch district tomorrow evening, evacuating at least 44,000 people from coastal districts in Gujarat to temporary shelters. The storm is predicted to bring heavy rainfall and severe gusts, and officials are taking precautions to safeguard people’s safety.

The IMD has issued a red alert for the states of Saurashtra and Kutch. Several NDRF and SDRF teams are on standby, according to authorities. The army is also ready to help with relief operations, with flood relief columns stationed in crucial places.
