The Winter season ended on a deficient note for entire Central India. As per rain stats, between January 1 and February 28, the region was 29% rain deficient.
The trend of recording deficiency is still continuing during Pre Monsoon Season, with the region standing deficient at 36%, between March 1 and 7. Individually, Vidarbha is deficient by 68%, followed by Chhattisgarh at 55%. Gujarat, Konkan and Goa, Madhya Maharashtra as well as Marathwada are topping the list with being 100% rain deficient.
In contrary to this, the only state which has received good rains since the beginning of Pre Monsson Season is Madhya Pradesh, wherein West Madhya Pradesh is surplus by 63%, while East Madhya Pradesh is deficient by only 2%, which is considered as ‘normal’.
According to Skymet Weather, more rains are in the offing for Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh on March 11. This is due to a feeble Trough which will form over the region. However, these rains will not last for long and the region will observe dry weather on March 12.
It will be then around March 13 or 14, when a Confluence Zone will develop over East Madhya Pradesh and parts of Chhattisgarh, which will give scattered light rain over Umaria, Shahdol, Anuppur, and Mandla. However, the intensity of these rains remaining light, will not help in improving rain deficiency figures majorly.
On the other hand, these rains will remain far away from Maharashtra, Gujarat and West Madhya Pradesh and these regions will continue to remain rain deficient.
Further, in wake of all these activities, both day and night temperatures are expected to increase. The increase in temperature will also mark the beginning of summers for Central India.
