Relief on the Horizon: Rain Expected in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra

April 6, 2024 2:12 PM |

While Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra have seen some scattered rain in March, both states are facing significant rain deficits. As of April 5th, Madhya Pradesh stands at a 48% rain deficiency, while Maharashtra is in a much more critical situation with a staggering 95% deficit. However, there's good news on the horizon – a change in the weather pattern promises much-needed rain and thundershowers across the region over the next 10 days.

An east-west trough extending from Chhattisgarh to west Madhya Pradesh, coupled with a cyclonic circulation developing over north interior Karnataka and parts of Maharashtra, will create the perfect conditions for rain activity. While isolated showers are expected on April 6th, the real relief will come with a gradual increase in rainfall intensity thereafter.
The initial beneficiaries will be Vidarbha, Marathwada, and Southeast Madhya Pradesh. Rain and thundershowers will then spread across a larger area, reaching Madhya Maharashtra and western Madhya Pradesh by April 9th. The possibility of hailstorms cannot be entirely ruled out during this period.

These showers will undoubtedly bring much-needed respite from the rising temperatures. However, farmers should be cautious as the downpours may cause localized crop damage. It's advisable to stay updated with the latest weather forecasts to make informed decisions.
