Night temps to plummet further post-Jan 12

According to SN Sahu, a meteorologist at Bhopal’s Meteorological Department, the current weather pattern is likely to persist in the state for the next few days, bringing severe cold despite the passing of the rain system. Sahu explains that an active cyclonic circulation system over Uttar Pradesh and a second Indo-Cyclonic Circulation over Rajasthan, along with a trough line passing from Gujarat to Uttar Pradesh, have collectively influenced Madhya Pradesh’s weather.

A resurgence of a Western Disturbance is expected on January 8, lasting until January 12, accompanied by a possibility of fog and light rain. Following the dispersal of clouds after this system, northern winds will infiltrate the state, causing a further drop in night temperatures. Residents are advised to brace for colder weather conditions in the upcoming days.
