Heat wave to severe heat wave conditions was seen in Madhya Pradesh for many days due to a prolonged dry spell. To date, the rain deficiency of East Madhya Pradesh is 92% with the West Madhya Pradesh deficit by 90%. The weather in Madhya Pradesh has been almost dry till now in June. Amidst this, yesterday, Chindwara and Indore also recorded very light rains.
The wind direction from dry north westerlies is expected to change its course to humid south-westerlies in wake of Cyclone Vayu. Thus, increased moisture content would help in triggering the thunderstorm and dust storm activities at isolated pockets of Madhya Pradesh during the next two days on June 12 and June 13. Places like Gwalior, Guna, Bhopal, Ujjain, Ratlam, Betul and Jabalpur would get to see isolated rain and thundershowers.
These activities will help in dropping the temperatures by two to four degrees. Still, mercury levels will be high with temperatures above 40 degrees. We can say that marginal and short-term relief is in sight. However, June 15 onward, temperatures are once again expected to rise and would lead to heat wave conditions. Whereas, south-eastern districts of Madhya Pradesh like Balaghat, Seoni, Chindwara, Narsimhapur, and Jabalpur would get to see scattered rain and thundershowers at isolated places around June 15 and 16.
