During the last 24 hours, many parts of Madhya Pradesh have received good rains including the cities of Indore, Guna, Bhopal and Jabalpur. Rain over these areas was moderate to heavy in intensity.
While Indore received a heavy rain of 67 mm, Guna received 69 mm, Shajapur 44 mm, Sagar 69 mm, Bhopal 35 mm, Dhar 57 mm, Ratlam 25 mm, Hoshangabad 76 mm, Raisen 128 mm, Khandwa 59 mm and Khajuraho recorded 45 mm rains.
At present, the Wind Shear Zone or the Trough is extending from Gujarat to Odisha across Madhya Pradesh. Moreover, currently the Low Pressure Area is also located over North Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Uttar Pradesh.
Therefore, we expect rain and thundershowers to continue over western parts of Madhya Pradesh as well as northern districts of the state. So, we can say that Bhopal, Indore, Dhar, Ratlam, Ujjain, Guna, Shivpuri, Shajapur, Datiya, Morena, Gwalior, Tikamgarh, Sidhi and Satna may get moderate rains with one or two heavy spells.
However, Southeast districts will get light rains only, with isolated moderate spells. Thus, Mandla and adjoining areas such as Betul, Hoshangabad and Seoni will get light rains only.
These on and off rain activities are expected to continue for at least the next two to three days until September 15. Thereafter, rain activities will start reducing as the weather systems start degenerating and the Trough extending via Madhya Pradesh will get weakened.
The rain activities will shift towards Northern Plains i.e. Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. However, the northern districts of Madhya Pradesh adjacent to Uttar Pradesh may continue with moderate spells thereafter as well.
These flooding rains will prevail for the next two to three days. Thereafter a relief will set in.
