With strong winds likely to blow over the north Gujarat coast, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Wednesday advised fishermen not to venture into the Arabian sea for three days from Friday.


There is no such warning for fishermen at the south Gujarat coast during the period, the IMD said in a release.

”Strong winds with speed reaching 40 to 50 kmph gusting to 60 kmph are very likely to prevail along and off the north Gujarat coast from May 27-29, 2022. Fishermen are advised not to venture along and off north Gujarat coast from May 27 to May 29,” it said.

The advisory has been issued for fishermen operating along the Arabian Sea coast covering Kutch, Jamnagar, Porbandar, and Devbhumi Dwarka districts.

The IMD said the Rajkot taluka of the Rajkot district in the Saurashtra region received an unseasonal rainfall of 6 mm on Tuesday.


But, no large change is likely in the maximum temperatures over the region in the next four-five days, it said. The IMD has forecast light rainfall and thundershowers at isolated places in some parts of south Gujarat districts.
