Monsoon heading for Rajasthan
Bhopal, July 11 : After a wet spell lasting about five days in Madhya Pradesh, the southwest monsoon is heading for Rajasthan.
Most places in Ujjain and Gwalior divisions witnessed healthy showers last night courtesy upper air cyclonic circulation in the state's northwest.
The sun shone amidst light clouds today in the state capital where the mercury climbed two notches above yesterday's figure to register 31.7 degrees Celsius, which is a mark above normal.
"The monsoon broke over Madhya Pradesh almost as per schedule but monsoon activity weakened since last night. A new system is developing over the Bay of Bengal and is likely to drench the state within about five days," Regional Meteorological Centre Director DP Dubey told UNI.
Overnight precipitation figures are Neemuch and Susner 7 cm each, Nalkheda 6 cm, Ratlam and Sailana 5 cm each, Gwalior and Pandhana 3 cm each, Sheopur Kalan, Aagar, Multai and Nasrullaganj 2 cm each.
