No relief likely from flooding rains in Madhya Pradesh

July 10, 2018 1:33 PM |

Bhopal Rain

The state of Madhya Pradesh has been receiving good rains ever since the arrival of Southwest Monsoon over the state. Though it is the month of July that has proved to be much more constructive in terms of rains, wherein on and off rains have been occurring over the state for quite a long time.

On the last day as well, many stations of Madhya Pradesh recorded moderate Monsoon rains. During the same time, a few isolated pockets of the state even witnessed some heavy spells as well.

In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Monday, Raisen recorded 38 mm of rains, Indore 37 mm, Pachmarhi 35 mm, Malanjkhand 28 mm, Khargone 23 mm, Bhopal 23 mm, Ujjain 18 mm, Shajapur 17 mm, and Dhar recorded 14 mm of rains.


As per Skymet Weather, the Axis of Monsoon Trough is running via Madhya Pradesh. In addition to this, a cyclonic circulation is also seen over Odisha and adjoining Chhattisgarh up to mid-levels. This circulation would gradually move towards Madhya Pradesh, leading to an increase in the rain intensity over East Madhya Pradesh.

Moreover, another cyclonic circulation can be marked over South Gujarat. This system would also enhance the rain activities over West Madhya Pradesh. Therefore, we can conclude that many parts of South Madhya Pradesh would start receiving moderate to heavy showers for the next two to three days.

In short, places like Ratlam, Khargone, Vidisha, Dewas, Khandwa, Hoshangabad, Betul, Bhopal, Indore, and Ujjain may witness heavy rains that may trigger flood like situation.

On the other hand, parts of North Madhya Pradesh, places like Khajuraho, Satna, Rewa, Nowgong, and Tikamgarh may experience comparatively lesser intensity rain.

However, the good news is that these heavy rains would benefit the Rabi crop sown in many parts of the state.
