The pleasant breeze that blew on Thursday morning gradually turned hot in the Madhya Pradesh capital with the maximum temperature remaining unchanged at 43.6 degree Celsius.

The minimum temperature also rose to 30 degree celsius on Thursday.

The meteorological department predicted that the day and night temperatures would remain static in the next few days.

The severe dust storm which hit the capital a day ago had brought down the minimum and maximum temperatures of the city.

But as the sky cleared, the day and night temperature increased again.

A slight fall in the day temperature failed to bring relief from the hot and humid weather for the city residents.

"The maximum temperature will remain static for the next few days. Clouds are prevailing over the city but no rains will occur. There may be a dust storm and a thundery development in the evening," said director of Regional Meteorological Centre Anupam Kashyapi.

Meanwhile, the centre has withdrawn the heat wave warning issued for the entire state.

Now, the heat wave conditions will prevail only over divisions in the south western parts of the state.

The MeT has released heat wave warning for Bhopal, Hoshangabad, Ujjain and Indore division.

According to the MeT, there are chances of severe dust storms occurring in these four divisions.

Predictions of light rains after three days have been also made by the MeT.

"Moisture has started coming from the Arabian Sea and has reached up to the middle of Maharashtra. It may reach Madhya Pradesh in the next 2-3 days. It may bring light rains to some parts of the state, including Bhopal," said Kashyapi.
