Madhya Pradesh Monsoon rains_ The Indian Express 600

A series of weather systems have been affecting the state of Madhya Pradesh for the last many days, bringing in the varied intensity of rains over the state. These rains were sturdy enough and resulted in flooding most parts of the state, majorly affecting the eastern half of the state.

On the last day as well, almost the entire state experienced widespread rains, however, parts of East Madhya Pradesh experienced more showers in contrast with parts of West Madhya Pradesh. In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Thursday, Datia recorded 46 mm of rains, Hoshangabad 37 mm, Gwalior 14 mm, Guna 13 mm, Bhopal 5 mm, Jabalpur 3 mm, Sagar 3 mm, Indore 3 mm and Khajuraho witnessed 2 mm of rains.

As per Skymet Weather, due to continuous flooding rains, West Madhya Pradesh is rainfall surplus by 23%. East Madhya Pradesh, on the other hand, is witnessing normal rains with a minor deficit of 2%.


The reason for the continuous rains over Madhya Pradesh can be associated with the low-pressure area that developed over west central Bay of Bengal which traveled towards West Madhya Pradesh. In addition to this, the axis of Monsoon trough has also been persisting over Madhya Pradesh.

The reason for these rains was the low-pressure area persisting over the northern parts of Madhya Pradesh and adjoining regions.

However, now, another low-pressure area has developed over Odisha. This system would also travel towards Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, resulting in heavy to very heavy rains to continue over the state on July 22 and 23.

This system would ensure cities like Bhopal, Indore, Jabalpur, Shivpuri, Guna, Gwalior, Datia, Shajapur and Ujjain to keep on receiving heavy rains.

Hence, we do not expect any relief from the ongoing flooding situation over Madhya Pradesh. In fact, flood situation would not ease out, rather may get even worse in the coming days. Cities like Sagar, Raisen, Dewas, Vidisha, Damoh, and Umaria are expected to be the major sufferers of the flood fury.
