Heat in Madhya PradeshHeatwave has raised curfew-like situation in several parts of Madhya Pradesh.

Here’s a look at the temperature profile in rest of the places: Temperatures in Madhya Pradesh

The mercury refused to come down at night as well. Thus, minimums are also settling close to the 30-degree mark in most of the places.

On Sunday, traces of rainfall were witnessed in Sagar and Gwalior. However, these rains occurred in the late afternoon hours and failed to bring any relief from the heat.

Heatwave returned back to Central India including Madhya Pradesh last couple of days back. Reason for this sudden rise in temperatures could be attributed to cessation of pre- Monsoon activities and change in wind direction. At present, the winds are blowing from northwest and west direction up to Central India. These hot and dry winds travelling from Balochistan and Rajasthan have joined hands with bright sunshine to bring heatwave.

Heatwave conditions have already spread across most parts of Central and North Madhya Pradesh, rapidly extending to some more parts of the state during next 48 hours.

No weather activity is likely over the region for the time being. Therefore, temperatures will continue to settle near the 45-degree mark.
