SUDDEN AND heavy rains lashed the State capital late on Friday night. The downpour, which caught people unawares, followed a very uncomfortable and hot day and brought some respite to the citizens.
With the weather system that developed over the Bay of Bengal a few days ago failing to provide much rainfall activity to Madhya Pradesh, weather had become uncomfortable across the State including Bhopal.
Though day temperatures ranged from 31 to 32 degrees Celsius, humidity maked the weather unbearably stuffy. However, sudden heavy rains accompanied with thunderstorm brought about some changes in the weather pattern temporarily.
On Wednesday night too, heavy rains had lashed the State capital for about one-and-half hours, creating panic among the people who had recently been hit by bouts of excessive rain and floods.
The Meteorological office said there was hardly any chance of major rainfall activity over the next few days, but some local thundershowers would continue in the coming days.
In Bhopal, temperature and humidity factor have remained quite high. On Friday, maximum temperature in the City was 31.9 degrees Celsius while the minimum night temperature was 22 degrees. However, a bout of heavy showers during night somewhat cooled weather.
