Cyclonic storm Nada, which hit Tamil Nadu coast on Thursday, has induced moisture into Madhya Pradesh from Bay of Bengal, as a result of which high clouds were formed in south-west part of the state.
Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) Bhopal Centre observed that Nada has contributed to prevailing warmth in south-west MP, which covers Malwa-Nimad area. “However, its effect has weakened now, which will cause changes in weather from Saturday,” said IMD Bhopal director Anupam Kashyapi. The department has predicted change in wind pattern, wherein northerly, cold winds will blow causing night temperatures to fall, and a gradual decline in day temperature. It has ruled out major fluctuations in day and night temperatures in coming days.
The day remained moderately cold across Malwa-Nimad on Friday. City recorded maximum temperature of 27.3 degrees celsius, one degree below normal. The minimum temperature at 14 degrees celsius was two degrees above normal. Though winds remained variable reaching maximum speed of 12 km an hour, northerly winds began to blow by evening.
