Jaipur: The cyclone Jal on Tuesday brought with it
light to moderate rains and overcast clouds in parts of
Rajasthan as winter inched closer, a Met official said.

The day temperature sharply declined by two to five
degrees in the state due to thick clouds and north-easterly
winds following entry of cyclonic waves, the official said.
Temperature during the night rose by two to four degrees
at almost all places in the state. Mount Abu recorded the
lowest temperature of 12 degrees, followed by Sriganganagar
(14.8 degrees), Bikaner (16.6 degrees), and Jaisalmer (16.8
degrees) yesterday night.

Meanwhile, Kota recorded 3.6 mm of rainfall, followed
by Udaipur (2.9 mm) and Chittorgarh (0.5 mm). There was
drizzling in many cities including Jaipur, and Mount Abu.

Jaipurites experienced a mild chill early today with
clouds hovering, and later in the day scattered light rains
sprinkled the city.
The night temperature rose to 21 degrees from 17 degrees
last night.

As soon as the "Jal impact" passes, the fresh
north-easterly winds will bring winter for good after two
days, a forecast said.
