The IPL makes a comeback to the Land of the Maharajahs today. The Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab will play their first matches of the season on Monday at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Rajasthan’s capital, Jaipur, at 8 pm IST.
Here’s a quick weather overview for the match.
Jaipur will see cloudy skies for the most part of Monday. A cyclonic circulation in neighbouring Haryana, induced by a western disturbance, is the cause of the overcast conditions. The Weather Channel believes isolated rain is likely in northern Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi.
However, Jaipur, which is in eastern Rajasthan, is safe for now, with no rains expected on Monday. As the day progresses, the cloud cover over the city will decrease, and clear conditions are expected to prevail by the start of today’s match.
Temperatures will also be on the bearable range, from 18 to 32°C today. During match hours, the mercury should be in a comfortable 23-27°C range.
Humidity will remain in the 25-30% stage for most of the day, although it is expected to rise at night to as much as 50%. However, this is not likely to hamper playing conditions.
