Parts of Chhattisgarh, south Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha and isolated pockets of Telangana have been receiving light rainfall for the last 2-3 days. An anticyclone was persisting over north Chhattisgarh and adjoining areas. Humid wind from the Bay of Bengal was merging with dry and cold winds from the northwest leading to the formation of clouds and subsequent rainfall.
Now, a trough is extending from Southeast Madhya Pradesh to North Madhya Maharashtra across Vidarbha. Therefore, we expect isolated light rain to occur for another 24 hours over parts of South Chhattisgarh, Vidarbha, Marathwada and at one or two places over Madhya Maharashtra and South East Madhya Pradesh.
Weather will go dry from January 7. Minimum temperatures may increase marginally over Central part of the country e between January 8 and 12 leading to abatement of cold wave conditions from Madhya Pradesh.
Day and night temperatures may dip once again from January 14 or 15, due to commencement of dry and cold winds from north. We do not expect any weather activity over Central India for or at least next 8 to 10 days.
