Rains have reduced considerably in the state and only a few isolated pockets have been witnessing good rains while the other parts are either receiving very light spells or are mainly dry.

However, the last 48 hours were a complete change for the third largest state (area wise) of the country. Most parts of Maharashtra, specifically, Vidarbha region has been lashed by good Monsoon showers.

Within the span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Aurangabad recorded 53 mm of good rains, Jeur 40 mm, Kolhapur 35 mm, Jalna 28 mm, Nashik 26.4 mm, Sangli 24.2 mm, Pune 5 mm and Nagpur witnessed 5.2 mm of rains. However, the capital of the state, Mumbai managed to record merely 0.4 mm of rains in contrast with the good rains it recorded in the last 48 hours.

As per Skymet Weather, a cyclonic circulation is over South Madhya Pradesh and adjoining Vidarbha region. A trough from this system is also seen extending up to North Kerala across Marathwada. This is the reason parts of Vidarbha observed some very good rains.

Light to moderate rain and thunder shower may occur at some parts over Akola, Amravati, Aurangabad, Buldana, Jalgaon, Jalna, Washim, Ahmednagar, Bid, Nashik, Pune and  Raigarh districts of Maharastra during next 4 hours.

However, now the rain activity will witness a reduction mainly over many parts of Konkan & Goa, Madhya Maharashtra, and Marathwada. while Vidarbha will continue to witness good rains for next 24-48 hours.

Good rain and thundershowers are likely to continue over many parts of Vidarbha also including some parts of Marathwada. Thus, the districts such as Akola, Nagpur, Buldhana, Aurangabad, and Beed can brace for some moderate to isolated heavy spells.
