Rainy Holi ahead for Vidarbha, parts of Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh

Monsoon rains in Maharashtra

All the three regions of Central India i.e. Vidarbha, Chhattisgarh and Southeast Madhya Pradesh have not received satisfactory rains during this Pre-Monsoon season. Although Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh have been receiving on and off rains. But Vidarbha is currently highly rain deficient.

In fact, Vidarbha is the only meteorological department in Maharashtra which has received some rains during this Pre-Monsoon season. Rest all parts of Maharashtra i.e. Konkan & Goa, Marathwada and Madhya Maharashtra are almost dry.

Now a confluence zone is expected to develop and extend from Chhattisgarh to North Interior Karnataka across Southeast Madhya Pradesh and Vidarbha around March 21, which will also be Holi 2019 evening.

Thus, in the wake of this weather system, we expect rain and thundershowers over Southeast Madhya Pradesh, Vidarbha and parts of adjoining Chhattisgarh on March 21 and 22. Thereafter, this confluence zone will fade away and weather will once again clear up.

During this time, we do not expect heavy rains, but one or two moderate spells may occur. Hailstorm activities will be ruled as convection will not be as high to be capable of giving hailstorm. However, gusty winds will be accompanied with rain and thundershowers.

By March 23, weather will once again become completely dry. Then the maximum temperatures will increase, and minimums will decrease.
