Pre-Monsoon showers to help in abatement of heat wave from parts of Maharashtra

May 8, 2019 12:16 PM |

Heat wave and Maharashtra

Isolated pockets of Vidarbha are still under the grip of heat wave conditions. However, due to the blowing of southwesterly winds, temperatures have dropped over Madhya Maharashtra and parts of Vidarbha in the last 24 hours. These winds have helped in abatement of heat wave from the western parts of Vidarbha.

In fact, these humid winds are originating from the North Arabian Sea and travelling via Gujarat towards North Madhya Maharashtra and Vidarbha. According to meteorologists, dry weather conditions would continue over the entire state till May 10. Thereafter, light rains are expected to commence in Marathwada and Vidarbha from May 11.

Possibility of light rains over isolated places of South Madhya Maharashtra during this period cannot be ruled out. Thereafter, weather would turn dry from May 13. While, on May 16 and 17, there are chances of light rains over the state. These rains would be in the wake of a trough over Vidarbha, Marathwada and would extend up till Interior Karnataka.

Heat wave conditions will continue to persist in parts of Vidarbha for two more days, abating thereafter due to the upcoming spell of rain. The day temperatures will scale down by 3-4 degrees and hover around the 40 degrees Celsius mark.
