It seems the weather has refused to go dry across Madhya Pradesh this season as the state continued to record pre-Monsoon activities during the last 24 hours.
Many parts of North and West Madhya Pradesh have recorded moderate rains with few heavy spells. Bhopal has recorded 21 mm of rains in span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Friday, followed by Guna 19 mm, Gwalior 12.7, Indore 5 mm, Umaria 2.8 mm.
The state has performed way beyond expectations and both East Madhya Pradesh as well as West Madhya Pradesh have recorded excess rains by huge margin of over 700 percent in first six days of the month itself. As on June 6, West Madhya Pradesh is excess by 734 percent, while East Madhya Pradesh is even better with 754 percent surplus rains.
Well, the reason can be attributed to the recent Cyclone Nisarga which had made landfall near Alibag in Maharashtra. The system has then moved in northeasterly direction across Madhya Pradesh as deep depression and depression, triggering excessively heavy rains across the entire state.
Usually, Monsoon surge reaches southern districts by June 15, while covering the entire state by June 25 barring isolated pockets of North Madhya Pradesh like Gwalior and adjoining areas.
According to weathermen, most likely 2020 would also see Monsoon making onset over southern districts by its normal date. Thereafter, we have to wait and watch the progress of Monsoon.
Not only this, weather conditions continue to be favourable for good rains to continue for the next few days. Particularly, West Madhya Pradesh would see moderate pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers for the next 24 hours, reducing thereafter. Subsequently on and off rains will continue and weather would not go dry.
But as mentioned above, rains would once again pick up the pace by June 11. During that time, we can expect moderate to heavy rains with few very heavy spells over South and Southwest Madhya Pradesh that would mark the onset of Monsoon over the state.
In nutshell, it seems that June would be an extremely rewarding month for the state in terms of rainfall.
