Share This News

As Maharashtra eagerly awaits crucial rainfall, the next 72 hours are set to play a decisive role in the state’s weather patterns. However, regions like Marathwada and Vidarbha are yet to receive adequate rainfall for sowing, causing farmers to anxiously monitor the skies. With the exception of Mumbai, Konkan, and certain parts of Madhya Maharashtra, heavy rain is anticipated across the state.

A favorable environment for rainfall has been created by cloud depressions along the coast, spanning from Gujarat to Kerala. The Meteorological Department has predicted heavy rainfall in Maharashtra and emphasized the possibility of intense downpours. On Wednesday, parts of Mumbai and Thane are expected to experience heavy to very heavy rain, with isolated areas in Raigad, Ratnagiri, and Sindhudurga likely to witness torrential downpours.

After a two-day respite, Mumbai was once again drenched in heavy rainfall on Tuesday, particularly in Dadar, Lower Parel, and Parel areas. The Meteorological Department forecasts a further increase in rainfall intensity over the next 72 hours.

The Meteorological Department has identified Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar, Jalna, Parbhani, and Hingoli districts in Marathwada, as well as Buldhana, Amravati, Akola, Washim, Yavatmal, Wardha, Nagpur, and Chandrapur districts in Vidarbha, as areas expected to receive heavy rain over the next four days. Additionally, a yellow rain alert has been issued for Pune, Nashik, Palghar, and Satara districts. The weather department has also warned of heavy rain in most parts of Ratnagiri and Raigad districts in Konkan.

As the state prepares for this crucial period of rainfall, residents and authorities are advised to stay vigilant and take necessary precautions to mitigate potential risks.
