RESIDENTS OF the State, hit by repeated bouts of heavy rains and hailstorm can breathe a sigh of relief as the weather system that causes the latest spell of disaster has moved over and the weather over the State is expected to clear out during the next 24 hours.

Regional Meteorological Centre Director Dr D P Dubey said the upper air cyclonic circulation that caused Thursday’s rains and hail in various parts of the State including the State Capital, has moved towards Maharashtra and thus there were no further chances of rains over the State.

Some activity is expected in neighbouring Chhattisgarh. During the last 24 hours, rains were recorded in various parts with Sheopur Kalan and Khajuraho recording one cms of rain each. Bhopal recorded 6.2 mms of rains during 24 hours ending at 8.30 am on Friday.

The change in weather has affected temperatures causing them to plunge. Regions in Western and North Eastern Madhya Pradesh recorded temperatures 3-4 degrees Celsius below normal while those in other parts of the State recorded day temperatures five degrees below normal. The highest day temperature was recorded at Hoshangabad at 350 C while the lowest night temperature was recorded at 120 C in Ujjain.
