Bhopal,Aug 23 (PTI) After torrential rains in parts of Madhya Pradesh in the last couple of days, the state witnessed a reduced rainfall activity on Sunday as the low pressure area moved towards Rajasthan, the IMD said.
As rains abated, the water level of rivers and nullahs started receding and road connectivity between some districts, which was affected due to the downpour in the last two days, was re-established, officials said.
'There was a let-up in the rainfall activity in Madhya Pradesh on Sunday,' J P Vishwakarma, meteorologist with the Bhopal office of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) told PTI.
'The low pressure area that brought rains in MP has moved towards Rajasthan,' he said.
Accoding to him, another system is developing over the Bay of Bengal, which may revive the rainfall activity in the state by the end of this month, most likely by August 27-29.
Although the IMD did not issue any rainfall alert, its weather update said that heavy rainfall is likely to occur at a few places in 14 districts, Shahdol and Balaghat, till Monday morning.
Rains or thunder showers are likely to occur at many places in the districts of 10 divisions, including Bhopal and Indore.
