Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): The spell of heavy rains and thunderstorms continue in the state of Madhya Pradesh. Due to the activation of cyclonic circulation and trough line, the state is soaking.

On Wednesday, several regions in Madhya Pradesh, including Damoh, Bhopal, Gwalior, Pachmarhi, and Shivpuri, experienced rainfall. Despite the rain, many districts also enjoyed periods of bright sunshine. By Wednesday evening, Damoh recorded one and a quarter inches of rain, while Bhopal saw more than half an inch of rainfall. The Meteorological Department has issued a heavy rain alert for 16 districts over the next 24 hours.

What does IMD say?

According to IMD Bhopal, a trough line is currently passing through the northern part of Madhya Pradesh, accompanied by active cyclonic circulation. This combination is causing the current rainfall and is expected to continue in the coming days.
