RAIN AND thunderstorm activities in various parts of the State experienced during the last 24 hours impacted weather causing a major slump in day temperatures.
Night temperatures also dropped somewhat owing to weather conditions. Rains were recorded in Satna, Bhopal and Sagar during the last 24 hours under the influence of a western disturbance.
In the City, day temperature slumped as much as four degrees since Monday and about seven degrees when compared to the temperatures last week and was recorded at 32.9 degrees Celsius on Tuesday. This was five degrees below the normal of the season. Although the skies remained totally clear throughout the day, the wind was high in velocity and temperatures apparently low and comfortable.
In other parts of the State too, temperatures slumped quite a bit. Indore recorded a maximum day temperature of 35.3 degrees Celsius, Gwalior – 35.6 degrees Celsius and Jabalpur – 33.6 degrees Celsius.
Western disturbance that caused heavy rains and hailstorm in the Capital and some other parts of the State has now moved on to West Uttar Pradesh but still has some influence over North Eastern parts of the State that will experience
some rain and thundershower activities during the next 24 hours, director of the Regional Meteorological Centre D P Dubey said.
In the rest of the State the weather has cleared up and temperatures will start rising again from Wednesday. In the Capital day temperature is expected to climb back to around 37 degrees Celsius.
