The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Saturday issued a yellow alert for thunderstorms with lightning in four divisions and as many districts of Madhya Pradesh. The alert, which is in effect until Sunday morning, came at a time when the mercury fell below 20 degrees Celsius, marking the start of winter in the state.

Thunderstorms accompanied by lightning strikes as well as downpours or thunderstorms may occur in isolated places in Bhopal, Jabalpur, Hoshangabad and Shahdol districts, according to the IMD report, adding that such weather conditions may prevail in isolated places in Burhanpur, Khandwa, Khargoun and Barwani districts as well.

JD Mishra, chief meteorologist at IMD’s Bhopal office, said the low pressure area was located north of coastal Andhra Pradesh and adjacent to the central West Bengal Bay, and this was bringing moisture into Parliament and causing rains in different parts.

“Isolated places in Jabalpur districts of eastern Madhya Pradesh received rainfall in the past 24 hours ending at 8.30 am on Saturday. The lowest temperature in Madhya Pradesh, at 17 degrees Celsius, was recorded in Nowgong in Chhattarpur and Raisen districts,” she said. Mishra said the minimum temperature would have fallen further had the low pressure area not been developed, adding that the minimum temperature was above 20 degrees Celsius two days ago.

Mishra said that easterly winds were blowing in Madhya Pradesh now and that the temperature would drop and chills would start after four to five days when the northerly winds began to blow. The minimum temperature had fallen to 16.2 degrees Celsius on Friday morning in Bhopal, but rose to 18.7 degrees Celsius on Saturday evening due to the low pressure area.

On Saturday evening, rain fell on some parts of Bhopal.
