Share This News

In a surprising turn of weather patterns, parts of Maharashtra, including Mumbai, have experienced unexpected rain showers, causing confusion among residents. Despite transitioning from February to March, the state and the country continue to witness climate fluctuations. The Meteorological Department has reported rainfall in North and Northwest India, expected to persist for the next three days. Even South Mumbai saw rain early on Friday, with light rain clouds covering the rest of the city.

This weather anomaly is projected to continue over the weekend, prompting the Meteorological Department to issue a yellow alert for certain areas.

Mainly clear weather and a fall in minimum temperature are predicted for the next 3-4 days over Maharashtra, particularly for Pune. Western disturbances moving northeastward will affect northern-central India today. Only in Northeast Vidarbha (Bhandara, Gondia, etc.) are likely to get thunder/lightning plus very light rain. The rest of the state will be dry. Minimum temperatures are expected to fall in the next 3-4 days due to northerly winds. While some regions will witness rain with lightning, others may only experience overcast skies.

On Friday, Dhule, Jalgaon, Nashik, Nagar, and Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar experienced rain. Additionally, Satara, Kolhapur, the Konkan belt of western Maharashtra, Thane, Raigad, Nandurbar, and Pune encountered intermittent rain and heatstroke. Heavy rain was predicted for Tarjalna, Akola, Amravati, Buldana, and Washim. Wind speeds of 30 to 40 km per hour are also expected in certain areas.

The weather forecast suggests an increase in rainfall towards Vidarbha on Saturday. Furthermore, Delhi, Punjab, and Haryana are likely to witness rain in the next 24 hours, continuing for the next three days. The changes in weather are attributed to alterations in the west of the Himalayas, affecting North and West India.

Concerns have been raised about possible crises due to lightning strikes, particularly in the northern mountainous areas such as Kashmir, Ladakh, and Uttarakhand, where rain and snowfall were expected. The administration has been alerted, emphasizing the need for the disaster management department to stay vigilant.

The central parts of the country, including Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada, and Vidarbha, experienced isolated light to moderate rainfall with thunderstorms and lightning on March 1-2, which will be extended to Chhattisgarh from March 2-5.

Hailstorms occurred in isolated areas over Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra on March 1, Chhattisgarh on March 2, influenced by the trough in westerlies.
