Intermittent rains are continuing over central parts of India, which is opposite to the fact that March generally remains dry. In fact, the normal rainfall for March is very less for Central India. On and off rains were seen over Madhya Pradesh due to induced Cyclonic Circulation which developed occasionally over North Rajasthan. Also, a trough extended from this circulation to Madhya Pradesh.
Moreover, a confluence zone also developed over East Madhya Pradesh which led to occasional rains. Rains are now expected to cease over East Madhya Pradesh but would continue over Chhattisgarh and Odisha. However, the experts have to say that the intensity will be more over northern parts of Odisha and are expected to continue for coming three to four days. A confluence zone will persist over East Madhya Pradesh to Gangetic West Bengal across Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand.
Thus, Chhattisgarh and Odisha which were largely rain deficient might decrease because of upcoming good and promising rains. Places like Mayurbhanj, Baripada, Balasore, Kendujhar, Jharsuguda, Sambalpur, Pendra Road and Bilaspur would be receiving good rain and thundershowers.
Such intense rain and thundershower activities are generally seen in the month of April. However, this time it seems to happen much before. In the coming three to four days, inhabitants of Jharkhand and Odisha would witness light to moderate rain and thundershowers with one or two violent thunder squalls, also known as ‘Kal Baisakhi’ or Nor’westers.
In the month of March, Central India remains mostly dry. In fact, the normal rainfall is very less for Central India in this month. Until now, Gujarat has not received rains, it is 100% rain deficit. Similar is the case with Konkan and Goa.
