Rain in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh

The states of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh have been witnessing dry weather conditions for the past few days. During this pre-monsoon season, from March 1 to 10, rain in West Madhya Pradesh is excess by 36%, whereas East Madhya Pradesh is deficient by 36%. The state of Chhattisgarh has also not received enough rains and is at present deficient by 64%. This is not a rainy period for these two states, any amount of rain during March is considered as unseasonal. Now, we expect scattered rains to occur over parts of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh between March 13 and 14.

A confluence zone is expected to form over Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. This zone will extend from southwest Rajasthan up to central parts of Chhattisgarh, hence there are chances of rain here.

According to meteorologists at Skymet, there are very rare chances of heavy rains. However, chances of thundershower with strong gusty winds associated with hailstorm activity over isolated pockets cannot be ruled out.

These weather activities are expected to be short, intense and scattered in nature. The minimums during this period might go up by two to three degrees. By March 15, the weather is expected to clear up and northwesterly winds will once again commence leading to marginal fall in the minimums. The maximums won’t experience much change, but rain affected pockets might see a drop by a couple of degrees.

Parts of East Madhya Pradesh and North Chhattisgarh would be mainly affected, whereas West Madhya Pradesh would witness isolated rains only.

Places like Mandla, Balaghat, Seoni, Umaria, Shahdol and Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh along with Korea, Ambikapur, Bilaspur and Rajnandgaon in Chhattisgarh stand a chance to witness scattered rain and thundershower activities. Rain over Bhopal and Indore will be light and isolated.

Since the rains are not widespread, crop damage due to rains and hailstorm should be ruled out
