There has been heavy rainfall in several parts of Madhya Pradesh in the past 24 hours. The regional meteorological department in Bhopal has forecast more showers for the next two days.

According to the meteorological department, the rains after the monsoon in Madhya Pradesh are due to the low pressure area over northern Telangana and adjacent areas with an associated cyclone circulation. It is also a consequence of western unrest over southern Afghanistan.

Divisions such as Gwalior, Chambal, Ujjain, Bhopal, and Shivpuri experienced heavy rainfall, while some other divisions experienced light to moderate showers.

“A depression was north of the coast of Andhra Pradesh and bordered the western central Bay of Bengal and this brought moisture to Madhya Pradesh and caused rain in various parts,” said GD Mishra, chief meteorologist at IMD’s Bhopal office.

“Northeast Madhya Pradesh will likely experience heavy rainfall for the next 24 hours, while some other parts will experience light to moderate rainfall. Clouds and showers are expected in several parts of the state by Tuesday, â€he added.
