A high intensity Western Disturbance (WD) risen from the Caspian Sea on April 11 had been easing out initially.Generally, the WD has been a routine weather activity but this time, it was coupled with moisture received from the Bay of Bengal and Arabian sea, which caused rain and hailstorm in recent two months.

The current WD would be passing out soon but the rain would continue till evening in parts of the state. Next seven days are likely to be WD-free and temperature would rise during day up to 45 degrees Celsius.

In last two days, not only has the mercury dipped from one to nine degrees Celsius during the night, but the people also experienced cold winds after cloudy weather.
