Pre-monsoon rains ahead for Vidarbha, Madhya Maharashtra in the next 48 hours

March 27, 2019 5:01 PM |


With the beginning of March, country also enters into Pre-Monsoon season. However, so far, Pre-Monsoon season has not performed up to the mark across the country including Maharashtra. The state has seen limited thundershower activities wherein major areas like that of Madhya Maharashtra, Vidarbha, Marathwada, and Konkan including Mumbai have remained dry. Looking at the figures, at present, Vidarbha is running rain deficient by 61%, Marathwada is deficient by 95%, and Madhya Maharashtra is by 88%.

There is trend for the maximum temperatures to exceed the 40°C-mark by mid-March. This time, however, the most heat-prone pockets in the state have not witness any spell of extreme heat. There has been barely one incident wherein heatwave or heatwave-like conditions made an appearance.

In the last 24 hours, there has been a little change with a few places recording heatwave conditions like that of Mumbai and Amravati. Whereas places like Parabhani, Beed, Akola, Pune, Wardha, and Yoetmal recorded day temperatures which were 3 degree Celsius above the normal average. The trend would remain constant for another 48 hours. Thereafter, some light rain is possible over North Maharashtra on March 29 and 30.

Temperatures and weather over Vidarbha, at this time of the year is governed by Anti-Cyclones which form in Bay of Bengal or over Rajasthan. Shift in these weather systems result in change in winds and thus, leading to weather over the area.

By April 1 and 2, the rains will cover parts of Madhya Maharashtra as well. Rains will not suffice to give any substantial relief from the current peaking temperatures as they will be patchy in nature.
