ALTHOUGH IT still remains a scorcher, some scattered clouding experienced in various parts of the State caused a partial drop in day temperatures, bringing some relief to people. In the Capital too, clouding was experienced towards late afternoon on Thursday, keeping day temperatures a wee bit low.

The maximum temperature was recorded at 38.2 degrees Celsius on Thursday, which is still a degree above normal, but about two degrees lower than the temperatures being recorded last weekend. The highest temperature of season yet was recorded on April 7 at 40.1 degrees Celsius.

During the last week, day temperatures all across State had crossed the 40 degrees Celsius mark, making the going really tough for people. The hot weather still continues but on Wednesday and Thursday this partial drop was noticed bringing maximum day temperatures down to around the 38 degrees Celsius mark.

The director of the Regional Meteorological Centre Dr D P Dubey said partial clouding and somewhat high velocity winds were the result of a circulation system prevailing over Gujarat. This circulation system was leading to some moisture feeding over the state, causing the partial clouding.

This scattered clouding would be experienced on Friday too and there are some chances of very light showers in Indore and Hoshangabad divisions, the met office said. In the Capital too, partially cloudy skies have been predicted.

On Thursday, Indore recorded maximum of 38.6 degrees Celsius, Gwalior 37.0 degrees Celsius and Jabalpur 39.2 degrees Celsius.

During the last few days following temperatures were recorded in the City, April 6 - 39.4 degrees Celsius, April 7 - 40.1 degrees Celsius, April 8 - 40.0 degrees Celsius, April 9 - 39.2 degrees Celsius, April 10 - 39.2 degrees Celsius, April 11- 38.8 degrees Celsius and April 12 - 38.4 degrees Celsius.
