‘More humidity was pulled from the Arabian Sea by the cyclonic circulation over south-west Rajasthan, which resulted in rainfall in the western part of the state. Two circulations include one that lies over south Chhattisgarh and its neighbourhood and extends up to the middle tropospheric level and is very likely to move west-north-westwards across Madhya Pradesh during the next 3 days. Similarly, a cyclonic circulation lies over south-west Rajasthan and its neighbourhood at the lower tropospheric level and is likely to persist during the next 2 days. Under the influence of these conditions, fairly widespread-to-widespread rainfall with isolated heavy rainfall is very likely over west Madhya Pradesh during the next 5 days.' -Met department officials.
