The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast rain for parts of Maharashtra, including Pune, over the next few days. It stated that an anti-cyclone is expected to form over the state after February 10, and light to medium rain would fall on Madhya Maharashtra, Vidarbha, and certain other areas of the state. The IMD also mentioned that Pune may experience a 2-degree Celsius increase in the minimum temperature until February 14, along with some haze and cloudy skies in the mornings starting on February 10.
The city is currently experiencing abnormally high temperatures because of the moisture preventing cold winds from the north from entering. According to the IMD, Pune experiences maximum temperatures between 34 and 35 degrees Celsius and minimum temperatures between 14 and 15 degrees Celsius. After February 14, the city will experience some respite from the heat.
It is expected to rain lightly to moderately in Telangana, Madhya Maharashtra, north Maharashtra, and Vidarbha, along with thunder and lightning.
Currently, the country’s northern regions are experiencing a wave of Western Disturbance (WD), which has lowered temperatures in many areas. However, because of the moisture in the air, most of central India, including Maharashtra, has not benefited from the cold waves.
