Officials from the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) have predicted a decline in the city’s overnight temperatures starting on Monday. For the past few days, the night-time temperatures have stayed two to three degrees above average.
According to the officials, the next few days will see a one to two degree drop in temperature. They said that the northerly wind pattern over the state is mostly to blame.
The city is gradually being overtaken by haze, according to a senior IMD official. The state experiences moderate relative humidity because of the south-easterly wind that blows over it. It is anticipated that the nighttime low will persist until November 19. The northerly wind over Maharashtra is causing a change in the wind pattern, which will likely result in a drop in nighttime temperatures starting on November 20 and continuing for a few days. The temperature in Pune City and a few other northern regions of the state will be between 12 and 14 degrees Celsius.
Some regions reported haze in the early hours of Sunday as well. While Lohegaon recorded 18.3 degrees Celsius, above the normal range by 3.3 degrees, Shivajinagar recorded 16.9 degrees Celsius, above the normal by 2.6 degrees.
The Marathwada region has recorded warmer temperatures across all five of its weather stations.
With the exception of Chandrapur, Nagpur, and Yavatmal, high nighttime temperatures between 0.2 and 2.7 degrees Celsius have been recorded at seven other weather stations.
