As had been forecast earlier by Skymet, yesterday’s Low-Pressure Area over Northwest Bay of Bengal has now traversed further in Northwest direction and can be currently marked over Odisha and adjoining region.
In the wake of this system, many parts of Madhya Pradesh have already received light to moderate rains. Any heavy rainfall has not been observed till now. However, today the rain intensity will pick up pace and we expect heavy to very heavy rainfall at some places over Madhya Pradesh. Particularly the eastern and northern districts of the state might get moderate to heavy rains as the system is traversing its path in Northwest direction.
Places like Sidhi, Satna, Umaria, Damoh, Jabalpur, Sagar, Guna, Seoni, Gwalior, Bhopal and Shivpuri might receive moderate to heavy rains in the next two days i.e. today and tomorrow.
By August 15, the weather system will start moving further westwards. The weather over eastern parts of Madhya Pradesh are set to clear up starting tomorrow. On August 15, the state of Madhya Pradesh is set to receive light rains only.
The threat of flash floods will keep looming over the state until the rain recedes completely.
