Regarding the weather shift, Ashfaq Husain, the duty officer at India Meteorological Department's (IMD) Bhopal centre said it resulted from an induced cyclonic circulation situated over central Pakistan and adjoining western Rajasthan, PTI reported.

Husain explained there is a trough in easterlies running from the aforementioned cyclonic circulation over the northeast Arabian Sea and adjoining Saurashtra and Kutch to southwest Rajasthan. Another cyclonic circulation was reported in central parts of northern Madhya Pradesh.

These systems collectively led to moisture incursion in Madhya Pradesh and the surrounding region, bringing about showers.

Consequently, the change in weather has caused a decrease in temperatures in various parts of the country.
