Central India and particularly Madhya Pradesh has been reeling under dry weather conditions from quite some time. However, during the initial days of February, Madhya Pradesh did witness some rainy spells and hailstorms but soon after weather became dry once again.
Since then, the elongated dry spell has been persisting in parts of Madhya Pradesh. Due to this, temperatures over most districts of the state have also been settling 2 to 3 degrees above normal. In fact, temperatures in East Madhya Pradesh are also seen settling marginally above the normal.
At present, most of the districts like Betul, Bhopal, Gwalior, Indore, and Ujjain are witnessing maximums mounting above 30 degrees while the minimums are also settling between 12°C and 15°C. The reason for these rising temperatures can be attributed to the persistence of Western Disturbance over the Western Himalayas.
As per Skymet Weather, whenever a Western Disturbance approaches the Western Himalayan region, the warm front results in increasing both the maximum and minimum temperatures. Though the days in many parts of Madhya Pradesh are warm, nights are still cooler.
Moreover, the similar weather pattern is expected to continue for another 2-3 days. After February 20, as the ongoing Western Disturbance will move eastwards, the cool northerly winds will once again start blowing. Thus, a marginal fall by 2-3 degrees in the temperatures is expected.
However, until then, the sky will be clear but few patches of medium and high clouds can still be seen over West Madhya Pradesh.
Warm weather will continue to persist. Nights will remain cool but days will become warm and diurnal variation will remain around 15 degrees.
