Many parts of Vidarbha witnessed a drop in the maximum temperatures by two to three degrees that led to the abatement of heatwave conditions in many parts of Vidarbha. However, the isolated pockets of Vidarbha still continued to reel under heatwave conditions with the temperatures still scoring above 45-degree Celsius.
The reason for this drop can be attributed with the light rain and thundershowers that occurred at a few parts of Vidarbha and isolated pockets of Konkan on the past day. In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Tuesday, Chandrapur recorded 3 mm of rains, Bramhapuri 1 mm and Nagpur witnessed some traces of rains. Few pockets of Mumbai also received light drizzle today morning which gave a sigh of relief to the Mumbaikars who were waiting for these spells for more than a month.
