Among the districts mentioned by the IMD are Gwalior, Hoshangabad, Sagar, Chhindwara, and Balaghat, all of which are likely to see light showers as well. 

Thunderstorms accompanied by lightning and gusty winds with speeds of 30-40 kilometers per hour are very likely in some areas in 17 districts of Madhya Pradesh in the next 24 hours, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said today while issuing a `yellow alert`.

"Parts of Madhya Pradesh have received light rains in the last two days. The upper air cyclonic circulation of south-west Madhya Pradesh and a trough from south-west to Kerala caused moisture incursion in the state, resulting in drizzles. Both these systems (cyclonic circulation and trough) have weakened now," explained PK Saha, senior meteorologist, IMD Bhopal.

Hatta and Patharia in Damoh and Betul districts have received 2 centimeters of rain in a 24-hour period ending at 8:30 am today, Mr. Saha added.

He said that the state`s highest maximum temperature in the last 24 hours, of 41 degrees Celsius, was recorded in the Datia district.
