Meteorological centre Bhopal is operative since 1976 with the objective to take observations at surface and upper atmosphere and transmit to RMC Nagpur/RTH New Delhi for analysis and forecasting purposes. Meteorological parameters such as Pressure, Temperature, Humidity, Rainfall, Wind direction and speed (at surface level) etc. are taken with help of conventional Meteorological instruments where as Pressure, Temperature, Humidity of upper atmosphere are taken with the help of Radiosonde attached with Hydrogen filled balloon. Earlier the balloon were tracked with the help of METOX up to 1984, for finding upper wind speed and direction . After 1984 X band multimet radars (dual purpose) were installed to track the balloon for wind finding and detection of Thunderstorm activities. Under the modernization programme of IMD automatic weather stations (AWS) were installed in 2009. AWS measures surface meteorological parameters hourly. AWS data is uplinked to INSAT Satellite and is received by Earth station at IMD New Delhi. AWS hourly observations are available at the IMD website :www.imdaws.com. The daily temperature, rainfall and agromet advisory is upload on M.C. Bhopal website: www.mausam.imd.gov.in/Bhopal. The Agromet advisory bulletins are issued twice weekly for farmers and agriculture. GNSS, DWR and GPS radiosonde has newly stablished in 2014.
