On March 29, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) reported a significant surge in nighttime temperatures in Pune. According to the data from Shivajinagar, the temperature rose to 23.4 degrees Celsius, which is 6.1 degrees Celsius higher than the normal mark. In areas like Koregaon Park and Wadgaon Sheri, temperatures ranged between 26 and 27 degrees Celsius.

This system is impacting Maharashtra’s weather, with Vidarbha potentially experiencing heatwave conditions within 24 hours. Additionally, some areas in Marathwada may witness light rain accompanied by thunderstorms.
