Pune has remained parched almost in the entire month of May. Apart from recording some mere rainy spells during the initial days of the month, the city has stayed arid. However, Puneities may brace for some showers in the next 48 hours.
As reiterated by Skymet Weather, a trough was extending from Northwest Madhya Pradesh to West Madhya Maharashtra region. Now a feeble trough is expected over coastal Madhya Maharashtra and adjoining Konkan and Goa region.
Thus, in the wake of this weather condition, rains are expected to show up in the so-called ‘Queen of Deccan’ from May 18 and are likely to continue until May 20.
While the rains were absent in the city, the maximum temperatures stayed near normal but the minimums have remained slightly above normal. However, in the last 24 hours, even the maximums have dropped by a nominal notch and settled at around 35.9°C which is 2 degrees below the normal.
Thus, the mercury levels that once had reached a whopping 41°C has now reached to a comfortable zone. Moreover, with these showers paving their way towards the city, a slight respite is likely.
However, no major changes in the temperature profile are expected and only a nominal plunge in the mercury levels are expected.
As against the average monthly rain of 40.6 mm, Pune has just witnessed a 2.2 mm of rainy spells. With more than half a month being passed, it is still a wait and a watch situation if the month will end with the city surpassing its monthly mean.
