Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh have been observing good rains lately. In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Sunday, Pendra Road has recorded 56 mm of rain, Bilaspur 31 mm, Ambikapur 8 mm, Malanjkhand 18 mm and Ambikapur 8 mm.
Multiple weather systems have been responsible for these rains. For instance, a Cyclonic Circulation is over Southwest Madhya Pradesh. Another Cyclonic Circulation is over East Uttar Pradesh. A Trough is extending from these two circulations. Moreover, the humid winds from the Bay of Bengal are feeding moisture, thus making the conditions favourable for rains. A Confluence Zone has also formed due to the merging of winds from the two different directions.
As these systems will persist for some more time, moderate showers are likely in Chhattisgarh for another 24 hours. In the meantime, East Madhya Pradesh may receive isolated light rain. On the other hand, West and Central Madhya Pradesh will be dry.
This Winter season is turning out to be very good for Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh in terms of rainfall activities. Due to good amounts of rain, Chhattisgarh is largely rain surplus by 163%, according to rainfall data from January 1 to February 23. While East Madhya Pradesh is surplus by 45%. West Madhya Pradesh, on the other hand, has managed to become rain surplus by 5%.
