The favourable creation of conditions for dust storms take placed the high temperature prevailed for continuous for many days then a permanent creation of low atmospheric pressure condition take place.
Locally the dust storm is popular by some names as – Andhi, Dhool Bhari Andhi, Andhar etc. It is also a popular proverb among native people of desert land that “the rain follows after dust storms” In Rajasthan there are total 11 districts which fall under the western Rajasthan desert region which has arid and semi arid climate types viz., Jaisalmer, Barmer, Bikaner, Ganganagar, Nagaur, Jodhpur, Churu, Sikar, Jhunjhunu.
