On May 29, Brahmapuri, Chandrapur, and Wardha recorded the highest maximum temperature of 45°C, while Jeur recorded the lowest minimum temperature of 22°C.

Pune Weather: The temperature across most areas in Pune has dropped significantly to nearly 25-30 degrees Celsius from over 41 degrees Celsius recorded just a few days ago. The influence of Cyclone Remal over the Bay of Bengal has caused this drop in maximum temperature by over 10 degrees Celsius, bringing it down to 24 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, the season’s lowest.

Meanwhile, according to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) forecast, Pune is likely to experience thunderstorms from June 3 onwards.

According to Former IMD head Anupam Kashyapi “Pune will experience thunderstorms in the coming days from June 3 onwards. However, this doesn’t signify that the monsoon has begun in the city.”
