Monsoon rains to revive in MP, Chhattisgarh, heavy spells in store

August 7, 2018 6:17 PM |


Currently, both Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are encountering rain deficiency. The entire Madhya Pradesh saw deficit rains to the tune of 8%, while sub-divisionally-wise, East Madhya Pradesh is deficit by 11% and West Madhya Pradesh by 5%. Similarly, Chhattisgarh is also rain deficient by -12%.


During the last 24 hours, light to moderate rain and thundershower accompanied with isolated heavy spells were observed over Chhattisgarh and parts of Madhya Pradesh where Jabalpur saw 36 mm, Jagdalpur 31 mm, Raipur 20 mm, Rajnandgaon 15 mm, Ambikapur 14 mm, Gwalior 13 mm, Rewa 8 mm and Pendra 7 mm.

Now as per weatherman at Skymet Weather, these states are all set to get good rain and thundershower in the coming days because of the well-marked low-pressure area developed over Northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining North Odisha. This weather system is most likely to progressively move in the westerly direction.

Therefore, moderate to heavy showers are expected over many places of Chhattisgarh and East Madhya Pradesh. However, the intensity would be much more over Southern Chhattisgarh and Southeast Madhya Pradesh where Sukhma, Bijapur, Bastar, Balaghat, Seoni, Mandla, Chhindwara, Betul and Hosangabad may get heavy to very heavy spells.

Meanwhile, there are chances of good showers in many parts of West Madhya Pradesh such as Bhopal, Dewas, Indore, Guna, Ujjain and Ratlam.

Further, gradually after 24 hours, rains will start decreasing over Chhattisgarh as well as Madhya Pradesh.

So in a nutshell we could say that the next two to three days, rains are going to recover over Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

Subsequently rains would decrease over both the states around August 10, but then on and off rain and thundershower would persist.
