The northerly cool winds were keeping the temperatures below normal in Chhattisgarh and East Madhya Pradesh until now. However, the weather models are indicating a change in the wind pattern due to approaching Western Disturbance.
As a result of this system, the winds would change to southerly/southwesterly and a further drop in temperatures would be restricted. Some relief is likely from freezing weather conditions.
Already, a rise in the temperatures has been recorded in parts of Gujarat, South Rajasthan and parts of extreme North Maharashtra. Likewise, the temperatures have increased marginally in West Madhya Pradesh during the last 24 hours.
Many parts of North Chhattisgarh also witnessed moderate to dense fog during early morning hours today. The changing wind pattern, however, is expected to improve the visibility levels as the day progresses.
Talking about the weather systems, a Trough is expected to form, extending from central parts of Pakistan up to North Arabian Sea. This system may gradually move east/northeastwards. An Anti-Cyclone is also likely to develop over central parts of Madhya Pradesh in next 24 hours.
In the wake of this development, light rain may occur in parts of Kutch and adjoining Saurashtra as well as extreme southern parts of Rajasthan tomorrow. On January 13, the spread may increase and cover more parts of Gujarat and Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. There are also chances of isolated rain in coastal parts of North Maharashtra and adjoining Gujarat on the same day.
