Madhya Pradesh may get a break from the rainy spell on Tuesday with the Regional Meteorological Centre predicting clear skies over some parts of the state. However, sporadic rainfall may be received in some parts of the state.

According to the Regional Meteorological Centre, Bhopal rainfall will gradually start decreasing from Tuesday.

The weatherman has, however, said that a new system was developing over the Bay of Bengal, but its movement is likely to start only after two to three days.

Multiple systems active over the state for past few days had lead to flood-like situation at many places.

Several rivers were in spate and traffic on highways remained affected for days due to non-stop rainfall.

The break in the wet weather is likely to bring much-required relief to residents.

Meanwhile, heavy rainfall was witnessed in many places on Monday. Ratlam district received highest rain at 42 mm, followed by Shajapur with 13 mm. Bhopal also witnessed light to moderate rainfall.

Similar conditions will prevail over state capital on Tuesday too predicts MeT officials. Rain and thundershower will also occur at many places over Indore, Bhopal, Hoshangabad and Ujjain division and Guna, Sagar, Ashoknagar, Chindwara districts on Tuesday.

Moderate rainfall will occur at isolated places in Chambal division and rest of the Gwalior, Sagar and Hoshangabad division.

Alert was sounded in many villages of Bhind and Morena districts, situated on the bank of Chambal river, on Tuesday. Villagers of Sabalgarh and Ambah villages in Morena district were shifted to relief camps.

Water level of Chambal river suddenly increased due to heavy rainfall over Malwa division and Rajasthan.

Water at Rajghat pool which connects MP and Rajasthan is flowing above the danger mark. Kachpur, Kherat, Mukutpura, Dinnpura and many other villages in Bhind district cut off as water level of Chambal increased.
