After observing unusual showers during the last few days, another round of unseasonal rainfall is all set to drench Central India. The episode will begin on December 22 and may continue for a prolonged period, until December 26.

Initially lashing Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh on December 22, the rain belt would cover parts of Chhattisgarh by December 23. There are chances of moderate showers coupled with hailstorm in Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh on these two days.

Mainly the Madhya Maharashtra and Konkan region of Maharashtra will be covered, with chances of some showers in Marathwada and Vidarbha as well. The city of Mumbai during this span of five days may see clouding, however, chances of rainfall are less.

Reason behind unseasonal rain

Usually, during winter months, Western Disturbance remains beyond the reach of the trio states. Hence, they generally remain dry. However, on a few occasions, there are significant developments that bring along winter rain for these states. At present, some weather systems have aligned to result in such unseasonal activities.

A Cyclonic Circulation in the form of Trough is over Southwest Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Gujarat. The seasonal Anti-Cyclone would be soon shifted over East Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Chhattisgarh. Also a low pressure area is marked over South-central Arabian Sea, whose outflow are reaching up to Konkan & Goa region.

South-easterlies from the Bay of Bengal will converge with the air mass accumulated around the existing Cyclonic Circulation. This combination would give rain in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh between December 22 and 26.
