Between June 1 and August 5, the monsoon has shown different colors over East and West Madhya Pradesh. West Madhya Pradesh has received 22% more rainfall than normal while East Madhya Pradesh has received 10 percent less rainfall than normal. Chhattisgarh is short of only 1% with normal rainfall.
Both these states got good rainfall in the month of July. One after the other low pressure areas continued to form over the Bay of Bengal and moved in the west direction, they continued to give good rains over Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh.
During the last one week, both the states have received subdued rain. Now the Monsoon trough has again shifted towards Central India and a low pressure area is about to form over the Bay of Bengal. This low pressure area will move in the west direction and will give moderate to heavy rains in many districts of Chhattisgarh.
From August 7, rain activities will increase in many districts of Madhya Pradesh including Chhattisgarh and heavy rain is possible at some places. On 9th & 10th, both the states are likely to witness heavy rain at many places. From August 11, the rain will start decreasing. This rain episode will make up for the shortage of rainfall in both the states. But on 9th and 10th, people may have to face problems due to waterlogging in some districts.
