The meteorological department has ruled out the possibility of rainfall in and around Indore over the next two to three days stating there is no monsoon system in place which can cause rainfall.

The city has received a total rainfall of 234.5 millimeters.

However, the department has predicted the occurrence of light showers at isolated places in south west Madhya Pradesh (MP). "The whole of MP will not receive good rainfall in the next two to three days," said the department meteorologist SK Dey over the phone from Bhopal.

According to department officials, the monsoon system is active in Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh which are likely to receive moderate to heavy rainfall.

In absence of rains in and around the city, day temperatures are set to rise and may breach the normal level.

For the past one week, the day temperature has been hovering around the normal level.

The night temperature is likely to be around 24 degrees Celsius. However, the weather will remain cloudy.

According to Dey, thunder storms may occur as winds carrying light moisture from the Arabian Sea will blow, forming light clouds.

The city recorded a maximum temperature of 33 degrees Celsius on Saturday. The minimum temperature settled at 22.5 degrees Celsius. Morning and evening humidity was 84% and 49% respectively.

North-west winds blew for most part of the day attaining a maximum speed of 34 kilometers an hour.
