Since the last many days, Maharashtra has not seen any significant weather activity. However, during the last 24 hours, isolated light rains have occurred over Vidarbha and adjoining parts of Maharashtra. These rains are due to the formation of a Confluence Zone over Vidarbha to Odisha. Humid southwesterly winds are merging with cold and dry northwesterly winds over Vidarbha and Chhattisgarh.
This Confluence Zone is expected to persist over eastern parts of Maharashtra i.e. Vidarbha. Therefore, on and off light rains are expected to continue over Vidarbha until February 5 or 6.
Meanwhile, the minimum temperatures of Vidarbha and Marathwada will remain above normal due to continuation of warm and humid southeasterly winds from Bay of Bengal.
On the other hand, the weather of Konkan and Goa as well as Madhya Maharashtra is running majorly dry. At present, southeasterly winds are blowing over Madhya Maharashtra and Konkan and Goa due to the formation of a Cyclonic Circulation over Coastal Maharashtra.
Due to these warm winds, day and night temperatures have risen by two to four degrees over these areas. Places like Mumbai, Pune and Nashik which were however experiencing cold weather conditions since the last few days are now experiencing a rise in temperatures.
We expect the wind direction to change once again over North Konkan and Goa as well as North Madhya Maharashtra from February 6 leading to a drop in day and night temperatures.
