Dry weather has been engulfing the entire state of Maharashtra since a very long time. In fact, the state is topping in terms of recording high rain deficiency. Data wise, Konkan and Goa as well as Madhya Maharashtra are 100% rain deficient, followed by Marathwada by 95%. The reason for recording high deficiency is the absence of any significant weather system over Northwest Arabian Sea off Maharashtra coast.
However, it is only the Vidarbha region that has performed comparatively by recording low deficiency figures around 28%. The reason being, occasional appearance of rain and thundershower due to formation of Confluence Zones at multiple times over this region.
According to Skymet Weather, another Confluence Zone will form over Vidarbha around March 2. Due to this zone, winds from opposite directions i.e. southerly and northerly winds will meet. This combination would give scattered rain and thundershower on March 2 and 3 over Nagpur, Akola, Amravati, Gondia, Chandrapur, Buldana and Wardha districts of Vidarbha region.
In wake of rains and cloud cover, the day temperatures will drop by 2℃ to 3℃ and settle around 30℃.
However, no relief from dry weather can be seen for Konkan and Goa, Madhya Maharashtra as well as Marathwada regions in the near future.
