Now, the well-marked low pressure area over Odisha and neighborhood is most expected to travel gradually towards Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. In view of this, we can expect moderate to heavy rains to lash parts of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh during the next 24 to 48 hours.
Subsequently, another low pressure is likely to develop over Bay of Bengal around July 19. This system will also move in the similar direction towards Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, thus bringing in another spell of heavy showers over Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh around July 20 and 21with moderate to heavy showers.
In a nutshell, we could say that good rains are anticipated to last over most parts of Central India, mainly Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh this week.
In addition, these heavy showers would cause chaos by prompting flash floods and water logging in most parts.
Many parts of Madhya Pradesh are already dealing with flood conditions, so there will not be any break but an enhancement to the prevailing flood scenario for at least the next 4 to 5 days.
Generally, at this time of the year, low pressure area or any weather system that develops in west central Bay of Bengal move in westerly direction towards Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, giving good rains over these cited states.
