Weather Updates: Below-Normal Rain in Maharashtra

Weather Updates: The IMD said on Monday that August would begin with below-normal rain in parts of Maharashtra.

The latest weather bulletin from the Indian Meteorological Department stated that most regions of Maharashtra, especially Konkan and Vidarbha, were likely to witness below-normal rainfall till August 4.

An extended range forecast by the weather department earlier, revealed less than average rainfall patterns in central India, including Maharashtra, till July 28. However, the week after would also witness below-normal rainfall over central parts of India and the adjoining north Peninsular India, the forecast continued.

Anupam Kashyapi, head of weather, IMD Pune, said, “The monsoon trough is very likely to be in the north of its normal position during most days till August 4. This will cause good rain over North India but less-than-normal monsoon rainfall over central India, Maharashtra, and the adjoining north peninsular India.”

He said, “In addition to this factor, no significant weather system adjacent to Maharashtra is present to aid good rainfall activity. The sheer zone as well as the offshore trough have also dissipated. These two systems had earlier caused extensive rainfall activity in parts of Maharashtra.”

According to Kashyapi, there should not be any significant precipitation over Maharashtra during the next few days.

“Parts of Maharashtra are likely to see only subdued rainfall activity during the next 7-8 days. Konkan, which is one of the rainiest locations in India, does not have a heavy rain warning during the next few days. The region will only experience fairly widespread rainfall during the next five to six days. Madhya Maharashtra and Marathwada, meanwhile, will experience scattered very light to light rain during the next week. We also don’t expect much rainfall (only scattered to fairly widespread rain) over Vidarbha till early August,” said Kashyapi.

Temperatures are also likely to rise slightly in parts of Maharashtra, as the rainfall activity and clouding would reduce in the coming days.

“However, parts of Madhya Maharashtra and Marathwada have a warning for thundery activity/lightning forecast for July 27 and 28 along with gusty winds. The increase in the maximum temperature is likely to result in thunderstorm activity due to the available moisture in the air and increased solar radiation.”

Pune is also likely to see very light to light rain till July 28, followed by very light rainfall at least till early August.
