Considerably colder weather is likely in most parts of MP right from the start of December, the weather office said. Western disturbance induced sharp dip in temperatures is likely in another three or four days. Meanwhile, marginal dip in night temperatures would continue during the next few days.

During the last three or four days, the weather had been comparatively warm, especially in Central Madhya Pradesh due to presence of an anti-cyclonic circulation. But the weather system has dissipated now and on Tuesday night, partial dip in temperatures was noticed. Bhopal recorded minimum temperature of 12.5 degrees Celsius, normal for the season, compared to 13.8 degrees the previous night. Khajuraho remained coldest in state at 6.6 degrees.

At present, the weather is comfortably chilly in most parts of state. The night temperatures are being recorded slightly below normal mark; in west MP they are slightly over the normal mark.

“We expect the mercury to continue to dip gradually as month-end approaches,” director of the Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) Anupam Kashyapi told HT.

November warm
This year, November has remained warmer compared to last year.

Last year, during mid-November, temperatures had dipped sharply and the minimum temperature for the month had been recorded at 9.0 degrees on November 16. Weather had remained quite cold for most parts of second fortnight of the month in 2013.

This November, the lowest minimum temperature reached yet was 11.7 degrees on November 19.

On most other days, the temperatures have remained over 14 degrees mark. The RMC director said this was because of continuing moisture incursion due to some weather system or other during the entire course of the month. "However it is nothing unusual. The weather pattern is fine for this time of the season," he said.
