Gradually many parts of Madhya Maharashtra may also start receiving good rain and thundershower activities. Rains over Konkan and Goa will be light and isolated. Isolated pockets of Vidarbha and Marathwada may experience strong winds along with isolated hailstorm activities on May 11. The intensity of rains will be heavy over parts of Vidarbha. Places like Nagpur, Akola, Gondia, and Chandrapur will receive good spells of rain.
At present, Vidarbha and parts of north Madhya Maharashtra are experiencing heatwave like conditions. There may be a marginal drop in temperature but as Pre-Monsoon activities usually occur in the late afternoon, maximums will not witness a significant drop.
