Pune: On Saturday, IMD predicted overcast weather over the north-central Maharashtra region over the next few days, predicting vigorous western disturbances from cyclonic circulation over Afghanistan and nearby areas from January 23 to January 27.
Explaining the phenomenon, Pune Anupam Kashyapi, Director of Meteorology and Climate, Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), said: “The interaction between the southerly winds from the gulf has increased cloud cover over the north-central Maharashtra region during this period. “he said. From January 24 to January 28 there will be cold winds from Bengal and cold, wet north winds from the cold regions of northern India blowing through the southern peninsula.”
This interaction is likely to occur over the MP, southwest/south MP, and north of Maharashtra, moving slowly eastward, likely increasing cloud cover over the period over the north-central part of Maharashtra. “Especially in Vidarbha, northern Madhya Maharashtra and northern Marathwada districts during that period, very light to light rains cannot be ruled out either,” said Dr. Kashyapi.
Minimum temperatures are likely to rise, but daytime temperatures are likely to drop over the next few days as overcast weather prevents the sun’s rays from penetrating the Earth’s surface. Single-digit temperatures are not expected in Maharashtra until the end of this month.
