The monsoon will begin to withdraw from north-west parts of the country in two to three days.
Based on this movement, the Meteorological department has predicted withdrawal of monsoon from Madhya Pradesh by month-end. City and surrounding areas, therefore, are unlikely to receive heavy rains in coming days.
Department regional head Abhinav Kashyapi said a new system, which may cause rains in Indore division after 48 hours, has begun to move from Bay of Bengal. The system is expected to pass through MP and Maharashtra and may cause light to medium rains in west of Jabalpur, Hoshangabad and Indore division after two days. "Rains will be scattered or isolated," Kashyapi said.
In Indore, moisture laden winds blew from northwest up to a speed of 18 kilometres an hour bringing maximum temperature to normal level on Thursday. The city recorded maximum temperature of 30.2 degrees Celsius, which was normal. The minimum temperature at 21.2 degrees Celsius was also normal.
