On Saturday, Bhopal recorded 24 degrees Celsius minimum and maximum temperature 38 degrees Celsius with partly clouded sky. Thundershowers were witnessed in many areas accompanied by high velocity winds. City recorded rainfall of 0.5 mm. Humidity was at 36 %. Many parts of the State are likely to experience scattered to fairly widespread precipitation during next one week with a fresh spell of enhanced activity in the latter part. Rain and thundershowers are very likely to prevail over some isolated parts in MP.

Indore recorded maximum 38.6 and minimum at 21.4 degrees Celsius and rainfall of 13.4 mm. Jabalpur recorded maximum at 37 degrees Celsius and minimum at 21.9 degrees Celsius. Relative humidity was at 48%. Gwalior recorded maximum temperature of 39 degrees Celsius and minimum temperature at 21 degrees Celsius. Rainfall recorded was 2.3 mm. Relative humidity recorded was at 45 degrees Celsius. Notably many low lying areas in city witnessed water logging on roads. Despite spending a huge amount on urban infrastructure and planning over the years, the question emerges why Bhopal still remains susceptible to waterlogging within a few hours of thundershowers. However, rains have brought respite from sultry weather conditions and locals were seen coming out at local tourist places to enjoy weather especially
during evening.
