Pune, Satara, Sindhudurg, Kolhapur, Sangli, Solapur, Ratnagiri and Osmanabad are expected to be prepared for the monsoon onset by 6th June. Bid, Latur and Nanded might experience the onset by tomorrow also. Mumbai, Nasik, Jalna, Aurangabad and Parbhani are likely to experience the onset by 7th or 8th June. By 10th June, the entire state is anticipated to be covered by the monsoon.

Pune experienced heavy rainfall on 4th June, with Lohegaon receiving a maximum of 144.0 mm. This was followed by Shivajinagar that received 68.3 mm, Magarpatta – 28.0 mm, Chinchwad – 23.5 mm, Pashan – 23.2 mm and Lavale – 1.5 mm of rainfall.

From 5th to 11th June, Pune and its surrounding areas can expect warm temperatures with potential rain or thundershowers, particularly towards the afternoon and evening. On the 5th, temperatures ranged from 36°C to 21.6°C in Pashan, 36°C to 24.2°C in Lohegaon, 37°C to 22.5°C in Chinchwad, 36°C to 24.0°C in Lavale, 37°C to 23.4°C in Magarpatta, 33°C to 23.5°C in NDA, and 36°C to 23.3°C in Koregaon Park. 

This pattern continues with slight variations through the week, with temperatures remaining high and rain or thundershowers likely each day. Heavy spells of rain are anticipated on the 9th and 10th. By the 11th, temperatures will begin to decrease slightly, offering some relief from the heat. 

The anticipated weather conditions bring potential risks to various aspects of life and property. Strong winds and hail pose threats to plantations, horticulture and standing crops, potentially causing significant damage. Additionally, open areas are at risk of hail, which could result in injuries to people and livestock. The strong winds may also cause partial damage to vulnerable structures, while kutcha houses are susceptible to minor harm. It is advised to avoid standing in open spaces or under trees during lightning to minimise risks to personal safety.

Seeking safe shelter is paramount during adverse weather conditions, particularly avoiding refuge under trees. Additionally, it is crucial to refrain from lying on concrete floors or leaning against concrete walls to minimise potential harm. Unplugging electrical and electronic appliances is advised to prevent damage from power surges. If inside or near water bodies, it is imperative to exit or move away from them immediately. Furthermore, maintaining distance from any objects that conduct electricity is essential to mitigate the risk of electrocution or injury.
