In its latest bulletin, IMD said that a low pressure area lies over Madhya Pradesh, and a high moisture feed from Arabian Sea over northwest India will continue for the next two days.

Even as several parts of India, including Maharashtra, Karnataka and Rajasthan, among others, battle with the widespread rainfall that has triggered flooding and waterlogging in the states, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted more heavy downpours for the next three days.
