Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh have received surplus rain from January 1to January 21. West Madhya Pradesh during this period is observing rain surplus of 164% as it has recorded 11.6 mm of rain against the normal of 4.4 mm as per the rainfall data. While East Madhya Pradesh experienced 31.1 mm of rain against the normal of 9.7 mm and is rain surplus by 221%.
On the other hand, Chhattisgarh is rain surplus by 362% as it recorded 48.2 mm of rain against the normal rainfall of 6.1 mm. We can clearly see how good the rainfall has been in both the state during this period (Jan 1-Jan 21).
Now, talking about the weather system, a confluence zone has formed over Madhya Pradesh as the southeasterly winds from the Bay of Bengal are merging with dry and cold northwesterly winds in East and Central parts of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
Due to the merging of these winds, unseasonal rain is likely to be seen in the region today and tomorrow. The intensity of the rains will be light to moderate.
By January 23, the confluence zone will fade away and the weather will become clear in both the states. However, during the next two days, the minimum temperature will remain above normal due to cloud cover, rain and humid winds. From January 24, the minimum temperature will start to drop and settle 3-4 degrees Celsius below normal
