The Well-Marked Low-Pressure Area is still hanging around the areas of the northern parts of Madhya Pradesh and South Uttar Pradesh. This system has given spells over the last four days and particularly in the last 48 hours.
The heaviest spell of rain was recorded on July 4 wherein for that day West Madhya Pradesh was 300% excess and subsequently in the last 24 hours as well it rained heavily in Southwest Madhya Pradesh. Places like Indore, Ratlam, Ujjain, Khargone, and Khandwa were impacted by these rains.
The onset of Monsoon was much delayed this time, normally the Monsoon visits this state in the first fortnight itself, i.e. after June 10, Monsoon can anytime hit the state of Madhya Pradesh. However, this time there was a delay of ten days. This time Monsoon reached Madhya Pradesh after June 20. Hence, leading to poor performance in the month of June. For the month of June, the rainfall deficiency for the East stood at 58% and for the West, it stood at 26%.
In the next 48 hours, moderate to heavy rains will be in sight, more so in the next 24 hours. The central and eastern parts of the state like Sagar, Satna, Mandla, Rewa, and Sidhi will see good rains. Hence, we can say that for the next 48 hours, good showers will be a sight in the state of Madhya Pradesh.
With these rains, Madhya Pradesh has become one of the rainiest pockets in this Monsoon season. Basically, the last four days have pulled down the deficiency levels and turned positive for the West and as on July 4, the rain deficiency stands at 14% whereas East Madhya Pradesh stands at a deficiency of 15% which is within the normal limits.
There are chances that the deficiency figures will be covered and could be more than normal as well. After three days, substantially the rains would decrease. Mostly light rains with moderate at few places will be a sight in the subsequent days.
Madhya Pradesh is the central pocket of the country and during Monsoon, most of the weather systems move across this region. Thus, making the state vulnerable to vigorous weather activities. Madhya Pradesh is one of the rainiest pockets in plains during Monsoon season, wherein it rains more in East Madhya Pradesh than the West.
There is a huge difference in the quantum of rainfall, wherein in East Madhya Pradesh Monsoon seasonal rainfall is of 1051 mm and in West Madhya Pradesh it is 876 mm.
