Intermittent Rain Likely In Parts Of State; Short & Intense Spells Expected In City | Pune News – Times of India

PUNE: Intermittent rainfall is likely to continue in parts of Maharashtra, especially Vidarbha, with thunderstorm accompanied with lightning & gusty winds (30-40kmph speed) at isolated places in Madhya Maharashtra and Marathwada till September 22-23, senior IMD officials told TOI on Tuesday.
KS Hosalikar, head, Climate Research and Services, IMD, Pune, told TOI, “A low-pressure area lies over northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining north Odisha-West Bengal coasts. It is very likely to move west-northwestwards across north Odisha and north Chhattisgarh during the next two days. Hence, we expect heavy rainfall spells over Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Vidarbha and east Madhya Pradesh in the next 2-3 days in association with the low-pressure system.”
He said short and intense spells or thundershowers/lightning were likely over Madhya Maharashtra, including Pune, and Marathwada. This was the reason why IMD has issued a yellow alert for several districts in east and central Maharashtra, Hosalikar said.
Hosalikar said the southwest monsoon withdrew from parts of southwest Rajasthan and adjoining Kutch on Tuesday, against a normal date of September 17.
Cloudy weather and intermittent thunderstorm were likely to prevail in Maharashtra, including Pune city, during the next 3-4 days. “The extended range forecast issued last Thursday had indicated that rainfall would continue with a reduced intensity over Maharashtra in the last week of September. Thus, very light to light rains may continue till month-end in parts of the state. This is because Maharashtra usually experiences convective rainfall (post-afternoon) during the time of monsoon retreat because of increase in day temperatures,” he said.
