The state of Maharashtra is all set to witness wet spells super soon. The rains can be attributed to the confluence zone developing over Vidarbha and Marathwada region. Confluence zone is the place where winds from opposite direction meet. Therefore, scattered light to moderate rain and thundershower activities are expected to commence from the night of January 24 or by the morning of January 25 over Vidarbha.
These activities are gradually expected to shift towards south, i.e. parts of Marathwada might start witnessing scattered rains. On Republic Day, i.e. January 26 and January 27, the intensity of rains might go up and isolated pockets of Vidarbha and Marathwada might even witness hailstorms.
Due to the blowing of cold and dry northerly winds over Madhya Maharashtra, Konkan and Goa, places like Nashik, Pune and Jalgaon might see a fall in both, day and night temperatures. However, the minimums of Vidarbha and Marathwada might rise due to dense cloud cover and humid winds from the Bay of Bengal.
By January 28, these weather activities would fizzle out, thus resulting in dry weather over pan Maharashtra. Eventually with time, the day temperatures would also start rising.
