May 30, 2017 1:29 PM |

Rain in Pune

The dry spell has been prevalent in Pune from a quite a long time now. It was back on May 12 when the city recorded 2 mm of rainy spells. Monday also saw some traces but any significant rains remained absent.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Monday, Pune received 0.6 mm of rains. Further Skymet Weather reiterates that no significant rains are anticipated over the city for at least another 24-48 hours.

However, a cyclonic circulation is prevailing over North Arabian Sea and a trough is extending from this up to Konkan and Goa region. In wake of this, southwesterly winds will be reaching Madhya Maharashtra, leading to cloud formation and thus resulting in rains over many parts of the region including Pune by beginning of the month.

Weathermen predict, scattered pre-Monsoon rains and thundershowers are likely over June 1-2 in Pune.

The countdown to Monsoon over Maharashtra has begun. Southwest Monsoon 2017 has already marked its timely arrival over Kerala on May 30. According to weathermen, western arm of the Monsoon is expected to travel along the West Coast and thus, the rain intensity will also increase along the region.

In a nutshell, from June first week, occasional showers are likely to continue over the city until the arrival of Southwest Monsoon over Maharashtra which is expected to make an onset by the second week of June.
