Central parts of the country particularly Vidarbha region of Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh do not receive good rains during the post Monsoon season. But whenever any intense weather system develops over Bay of Bengal and travel towards the Indian coast, it sometimes reaches up to the central parts of the country, hence giving good rainfall activity.
Another reason for rains over this region can be due to the development of a north-south trough across central parts of the country. This time, it is due to this similar situation, wherein a trough has extending from North Chhattisgarh to Karnataka across Vidarbha.
Since the last 48 hours, Chhattisgarh, Vidarbha and parts of Southeast Madhya Pradesh have been receiving light to moderate rain and thundershower activities. In span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Sunday, Yeotmal recorded 24 mm of rain, Chandrapur 9 mm, Nagpur 6 mm, Rajnandangaon 5 mm, and Gondia 2 mm.
Further, we expect this trough to persist for another 48 hours. Therefore, on and off rain and thundershower activities will continue over Chhattisgarh, Vidarbha and parts of Southeast Madhya Pradesh for another 48 hours. In fact, Marathwada may also receive light rainfall activity.
Short spells of rain and thundershower are likely over Bemetara, Bilaspur, Durg, Kabeerdham, Korba, Koriya, Mungeli, Rajnandgaon, Surajpur, Anuppur, Balaghat, Chhindwara, Dindori, Jabalpur, Mandla, Narsimhapur, Seoni, Shahdol and Umaria districts of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.
Moreover, during the post Monsoon season, temperatures are low and chances of formation of a vertically developed cloud are more prominent. These thunder clouds at times give hail storm activities as well. Therefore, chances of one or two short spell of hailstorm at isolated places cannot be ruled out.
