According to scientists at the Bhopal Meteorological Center, the western turmoil in Pakistan and its environs has stopped the rise in temperature in scorching Madhya Pradesh. The temperature was expected to reach 44 degrees in many districts of the state. The temperature had crossed 42 degrees in most places. Climate change can cause temperatures to drop by one to two degrees. Not much is going to change for the next two days. The meteorological center also said that the subsequent western disturbance from March 23 could push the current disturbance towards northern India and extend the relief series.
According to meteorologists, hot westerly winds from Rajasthan and Gujarat had raised the temperature in the Arabian Sea till Friday due to anti-cyclone.

Gujarat and Rajasthan have also seen a drop in temperature due to the north-westerly winds blowing from the west. This will provide relief from the heat in Madhya Pradesh.
