pre monsoon rain in Maharashtra

All the four meteorological divisions of Maharashtra i.e. Vidarbha, Marathwada, Madhya Maharashtra and South Konkan and Goa have received rain and thundershower activities, during the last 24 hours.

Scattered rains were observed in Akola, Pune, Sindhudurg and Ratnagiri. In fact, one or two short spells of intense rains were reported in Solapur, while good rains and thundershowers were experienced in Pune, yesterday, during the afternoon hours. Light rains were also observed in Mumbai, last night, around 3 am.

The credit for these rains goes to the Trough, which is running from eastern parts of Madhya Pradesh up to North interior Karnataka across Vidarbha and Marathwada. Moreover, an offshore Trough has formed from Maharashtra coast up to the coast of Kerala. Whenever, two systems combine, the result is rain.

Thus, on and off rain and thundershower activities are expected to continue in many parts of Maharashtra. The intensity would be particularly more over South Madhya Maharashtra and South Konkan and Goa. There are chances of scattered light rain in Mumbai as well. Moreover, scattered rains are expected in parts of Vidarbha and Marathwada. These on and off pre- Monsoon rains will continue over Vidarbha, Marathwada and South Madhya Maharashtra for the next two to three days. The intensity would be light in Vidarbha and Marathwada, while slightly more over South Madhya Maharashtra and South Konkan and Goa.

Weather alert for Maharashtra

Rain and thundershowers with strong winds (40-50 kmph) may occur over Akola, Amravati, Aurangabad, Bhandara, Bid, Buldana, Chandrapur, Gadchiroli, Gondia, Hingoli, Jalna, Kolhapur, Latur, Nagpur, Nanded, Osmanabad, Parbhani, Pune, Raigarh, Ratnagiri, Sangli, Satara, Sindhudurg, Solapur, Wardha, Washim and Yavatmal during next 8 to 10 hours.

On the contrary, weather of North Konkan and Goa as well as North Madhya Maharashtra will remain dry for next few days.

Further by June 12, pre- Monsoon activities will pick up pace over Konkan and Goa. By this time, Mumbai may also get short spell of rain and thundershower activities.

As reiterated earlier, due to the late arrival of Monsoon in Kerala, the onset of Monsoon over Mumbai would also be delayed by a week or so.
