AMIDST 90 per cent cloud cover, just 0.2mm rainfall during the day has cheered people from all sections and sectors in Raipur on Monday. The much needed soothing sunrays appearing from 10 per cent clear sky played significant role in evaporating the damp conditions developed during the incessant showers last week. However, toxic dust puffing from all roads damaged by rainfall across the city made thoroughfare worst for the people.

Though Raipur recorded trace rainfall, Durg received the highest of 50mm rainfall in the state on Monday. The forecast by Meteorological Center, Raipur, states of light to moderate rain or thundershowers very likely at many places over the state on September 4. Thus with no warning, the Sunday’s cyclonic circulation over North Odisha and neighbourhood that now lies over northeast Jharkhand will reduce the rainfall activities in the state. In the capital city Raipur, one or two spells of showers is expected on Tuesday.

The overall rainfall recorder in different places during last 24 hours are Odgi and Wadrafnagar – 40mm, Tamnar, Dharamjaigarh, Balrampur, Ramanujnagar, Tapkara and Sukma – 30mm, Raipur, Berla, Khairagarh, Takhatpur, Kartala, Pali, Ambikapur, Lundra, Kusmi, Shankargadh and Kasabel – 20mm, Mana, Bilaigarh, Rajim, Mainpur, Kurud, Nagri, Patan, Mahasamund, Pithora, Bagbahra, Basna, Rajnandgaon, Gandai, Dongargarh, Dongargaon, Chiria, Bilha, Shivrinarayan, Champa, Shakti, jaijaipur, Korba, Kharsia, Gharghoda, Lailunga, Udaipur, Surajpur, Bhaiyyathan, Ramanujganj, Pratappur, Rajpur, manora, Kunkuri, Sonhat, Bastanar, Bade Rajpur, Dantewada, Pakhanjur and Bhairamgarh recorded 10mm rainfall. Similarly, below 10mm rainfall was recorded at many places across the state in last 24 hours.
