Bhopal: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) Monday predicted moderate showers in Madhya Pradesh, Mumbai and surrounding areas and higher intensity rain in south Konkan over the next two days.

Monsoon is likely to hit Madhya Pradesh by next week but pre-monsoon showers have brought down temperatures, S K Dey, senior scientist at the Meteorological Department in Bhopal said.

The monsoon generally arrives in MP around June 10 and has been delayed, Dey said adding that a deviation by “a week or two” is normal. He said the maximum temperatures in most parts of the state have dipped below 40 degrees Celsius and it is likely to come down further over the next week due to pre-monsoon showers.

Tourist town Khajuraho was the hottest in the state at 43.2 degrees Celsius, while Rewa was second with 42.4 degrees Celsius, the IMD said.

Bhopal and Indore both recorded maximum temperatures at 36.7 degrees Celsius.

Dey said sporadic light showers are expected in some parts of the state during the next 24 hours, adding that rains were recorded in all divisions of the state in the last 24 hours except in Hoshangabad.
