The states of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh experienced scattered Monsoon rain and thundershowers during the last 24 hours. In fact, Sagar in Madhya Pradesh recorded very heavy rainfall activity to the tune of 73 mm.
In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Wednesday, Ambikapur recorded 30.4 mm of rain, followed by Seoni 28.4 mm, Umaria 23.4 mm, Satna 19.3 mm, Dhar 18.1 mm, Khajuraho 9.6 mm, Durg 5.8 mm, Mandla 5 mm, Pendra 4.9 mm, Rajnandgaon 2 mm and Pachmarhi 1 mm.
Now we expect patchy Monsoon rains to continue over many parts of Madhya Pradesh and few parts of Chhattisgarh during the next 48 hours. Rain intensity will increase over Chhattisgarh by July 1 and during that time we expect heavy to very heavy Monsoon rains in Chhattisgarh.
These heavy rains will occur due to the formation of a low-pressure area over Northwest Bay of Bengal around June 30, which will move towards Central India over parts of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
Further on July 2 and 3, entire Madhya Pradesh will experience fairly widespread rain and thundershowers. Similarly, Chhattisgarh will also continue to witness good rains. These heavy rains may also trigger flash floods in parts of Madhya Pradesh.
