Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The delay in the arrival of monsoon gains traction. Due to the weakening of the monsoon winds from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, monsoon in the state of Madhya Pradesh is said to be delayed by four to five days. IMD Bhopal had indicated that the monsoon might enter through Balaghat and Dindori around June 19-20. It was predicted to become active in the eastern part within the next 2-3 days.

A cyclonic system over southwest Rajasthan and a trough line extending from Uttar Pradesh to Meghalaya were active. Additionally, moisture was coming in due to the presence of southwest winds. This caused thunderstorm and rainfall activities in the state. However, the progress of the monsoon had slowed down, causing a delay of a few days.

On the preceding Saturday, the state witnessed two weather patterns. Rainfall occurred in several districts, including Chhindwara and Burhanpur. Meanwhile, Bijawar in Chhatarpur was the hottest, with the daytime temperature reaching up to 45.6 degrees. The top 10 hottest cities included Khajuraho, Prithvipur, Chitrakoot, Gwalior, Nowgaon, Singrauli, Sidhi, Rewa, and Tikamgarh.
