WITH THE mercury soaring a notch up, the City on Sunday experienced the maximum day temperature of the season — 41.7 degrees. On Saturday, the day temperature in the City was recorded at 41.6 degrees.
Elsewhere in the State, the temperature reached 42 degrees and above in many parts. The highest temperature in the State on Sunday was recorded in Sheopur Kalan at 44.0 degrees.

Before this, the highest of season in the City was recorded at 40.7 degrees on April 25.. Though partial clouds during afternoon and evening hours to an extent lessened the heat intensity, weather turned uncomfortable in most parts of the State.
Even an upper air circulation existing over the State and causing some rains in the Jabalpur district did not give any respite.
The circulation system that existed over the Western MP, has moved to North East MP and is expected to cause some rains or thundershowers in some parts of Bhopal, Hoshangabad, Indore, Rewa, Sagar and Jabalpur divisions. However, it would not affect the temperatures much, which are expected to remain around 42 degrees in most parts of the State, including the capital.
The met office mentioned that during next 24 hours the skies over the City would remain mainly clear though some thundershowers might be expected during afternoon or evening.
On Sunday, Indore recorded a maximum of 41.6 degrees and minimum of 24.6 degrees, Gwalior – 42.9 and 27.6 degrees and Jabalpur – 41.1 and 25.5 degrees.
