Why temperature has gone up??
As predicted by IMD Pune, a trough from east Vidarbha to North/South Interior Karnataka is almost continuously causing moisture incursion over parts of central Maharashtra. So, cold northerly winds are unable to penetrate into parts of Maharashtra resulting in high day temperatures as well as high night temperatures. Currently, some drop is likely in minimum temperatures, during the next 36 hours, while the temperature could rise again from February 9. This is because moisture incursion due to winds coming from southern peninsula, which may interact with northerly winds over parts of central India including some parts of Maharashtra in coming days, resulting in chances of isolated to scattered rain over Vidarbha, Marathwada & Madhya Maharashtra.
