In the past 24 hours, Chinchwad has recorded the highest rainfall in Pune with 83.5mm rainfall.
Speaking to Pune Pulse, Dr Anupam Kashyapi, Head, Weather Forecasting Division, IMD Pune, said “Cloud formation & heat are some of the major reasons for this amount of rainfall. Also, mainly it’s contribution of local level instability, resulting in even cloud formation. For the past 2 to 3 days, there was a lot of heat & clear sky in Pune. Clouds started forming & accumulating due to which moisture began developing in these clouds. It resulted in heavy rainfall in Chinchwad.”
As per information & data of Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Chinchwad recorded the highest rainfall of 83.5mm. The second area was Magarpatta with 54mm rainfall. Next was Lohegaon with 31.8mm rainfall.
IMD states that while there is no active weather system in Maharashtra right now, there is ample moisture in the atmosphere which is likely to give rise to rains and thunderstorms over the next couple of days. In addition, there are signs of cyclonic circulation over the Bay of Bengal on 4th September. This has led to favourable weather conditions and increased rain chances over the next 5 days. In the next 5 days, there is a chance of rain over many places in the state of Konkan and in the state of Goa. In Madhya Maharashtra and Maharashtra, there is also a possibility of light to moderate rain over the next 2 days. In Marathwada and in Vidarbha, rain is likely to increase over the next few days.
