After reeling under dry and warm weather conditions and witnessing rising mercury levels, some rains are finally foreseen for the regions of Vidarbha and Marathwada. In general, rains have remained on the lower side for both the regions during the month of March.

It is due to the development of any significant weather system over the region or formation of a confluence zone over the region that rain occurs over both the regions. This is exactly the situation at present that would result in rains over parts of Vidarbha and Marathwada.

As per Skymet Weather, a cyclonic circulation is marked over North Madhya Maharashtra and adjoining Madhya Pradesh. Coupled with this, the Depression in the Arabian Sea and an associated trough extending along Konkan and Goa region would be causing rain and thundershowers over the region.

Talking about the temperatures of both the regions, the maximum temperatures of Vidarbha and Marathwada have dropped and at present are settling close to normal. While minimums are running above normal by 2-3 degrees. These rain and hailstorm activities would, in turn, result in a further drop in the temperatures.
