The heatwave that has been bothering parts of Maharashtra, especially Vidarbha has finally abated. The mercury levels across many parts of Vidarbha have also dropped significantly.
The reason for this drop in the maximum temperatures can be related with on and off pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers that had occurred in the neighboring states and in parts of Vidarbha.
On the past day also, scattered rains have occurred over parts of South Madhya Maharashtra and isolated pockets of Vidarbha. In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Tuesday, Sangli recorded 15 mm of rains, Gondia 3.8 mm, and Solapur witnessed 1 mm of rains.
These rains were due to the trough which is extending from East Madhya Pradesh to North Interior Karnataka across Vidarbha.
