Well marked low-pressure area over north MP

According to Skymet, a well marked low-pressure area is over north Madhya Pradesh. Its impact will be felt over Madhya Pradesh as well as over Eastern parts of Rajasthan in terms of heavy downpours. The well-marked low-pressure area will be shifting over Northwest Madhya Pradesh. Therefore, rain activities will gradually reduce over the eastern parts of Madhya Pradesh.

However, scattered light to moderate rain may continue. However, the main beneficiary will be the western districts of Madhya Pradesh along with East Rajasthan. Day temperatures are well below normal. Skymet expect comfortable weather to continue over these areas for at least the next week.

It may rain in Gwalior-Chambal. At the same time, along with Mandsaur, Neemuch, Shajapur, Agar and Ratlam of Ujjain division, rain will continue in Rajgarh of Bhopal division. Light drizzle may occur at other places. From July 1, there will be no heavy rains for a few days.

Water starts coming in dams

Due to the continuous rains since last one week, water has also started coming in the rivers and dams. There has been some inflow of water in the Kolar Dam connected to Bhopal. Apart from this, rains are also continuing in the catchments areas of Bansagar, Bargi, Omkareshwar, Indira Sagar, Gandhisagar, Kaliyasot, Kerwa, Kundalia, Mohanpura etc. dams. In such a situation, water will start coming here too. However, experts say that the water level in the dams will increase only after continuous heavy rains.

Rain activities over the western districts of Rajasthan may not be very heavy but the weather will not go completely dry. Scattered to isolated rains are possible. Agriculture in most of the districts of Madhya Pradesh and many districts of Rajasthan are rain dependent. These ongoing rain activities will certainly help farmers. Moreover, the ponds and reservoir will receive ample water.
