Weather has become considerably warmer with temperatures, both day and night, shooting up in several parts of MP, especially in Bhopal during the last two days. MeT office said the weather conditions would remain almost similar for the next two to three days, except for extreme north/northwest MP where light showers are expected.

Other parts of state may also witness rainfall as the western disturbance may pull more moisture, director of Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) Anupam Kashyapi said. Only partial clouds might be witnessed in some areas on February 5 and 6, he said.

On Tuesday, Bhopal recorded maximum day temperature at 29.3 degrees Celsius, which was three degrees above normal. The minimum temperature on Monday night was recorded at 16.4 degrees Celsius which was five degrees above normal.

The sudden rise in temperatures is making distinct impact among the citizens shedding woolens during the day and resorting to only light warm clothes during evening and early morning hours.

In Indore, the day temperature came down to 27.4 degrees Celsius, one degree below normal, but the night temperature continued to be 13.2 degrees Celsius, three degrees above normal.

MeT director said if the wind directions change, the night temperatures would show partial decrease after two days. Cold conditions are expected to prevail, though in a cyclic manner, till February 10. Intense cold is not expected any more this season, he said.

After February 10, both day and night temperatures would start rising gradually. By third week of the month, the day temperature in Bhopal is likely to reach 32-34 degrees mark.
