From the past few days, good rains have been witnessed in Madhya Pradesh and they have helped in pulling down the rain deficiencies and now it is in the normal category. Wherein East Madhya Pradesh is rain deficit by 18% that falls under normal bracket while West Madhya Pradesh is surplus by 15%.
In the past 24 hours, many parts of the state have received heavy rains. Places like Seoni, Jabalpur, Nowgong, Bhopal, Guna, and Hoshangabad recorded good rains. Nowgong saw 99 mm of rains while Bhopal and Guna witnessed 49 mm and 54 mm of rains, respectively. Now the Depression over Northwest Bay of Bengal will move inland and will be responsible for giving heavy to very heavy rains over the southern districts of Madhya Pradesh during the next 48 hours. In wake of these rains, localised flooding can be a sight over the southern districts of Madhya Pradesh.
However, many more districts will also get moderate rains with one or two heavy spells. Most affected regions may be Mandla, Seoni, Hoshangabad, Bhopal, Dewas, Indore, and Chhindwara.
The experts have to say that this Depression will get weakened and will move further West and by August 8, rain activities will decrease over the eastern parts of the state. However, western parts of the state will continue with moderate to heavy rains. Around August 9, rains will slow down across entire Madhya Pradesh. This rain episode will further increase the surplus values of West Madhya Pradesh and further up the deficiency levels of East Madhya Pradesh.
