Anticipated Rainfall in Maharashtra Sparks IMD’s Yellow Alert
Pune Weather Update: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has recently issued a yellow alert for parts of Maharashtra, including Pune, on November 25-26. The heightened alert is attributed to the intrusion of high moisture levels from the Bay of Bengal, leading to expectations of light to isolated moderate-level rainfall across the state.
Cyclonic Circulation and Trough Line Impacting Weather
Anupam Kashyapi, the head of the weather and forecasting division at IMD Pune, sheds light on the meteorological factors contributing to the anticipated rainfall. A cyclonic circulation in the Arabian Sea near the Maharashtra coast, coupled with a trough line extending to north Maharashtra, has led to southeast and easterly winds in the region. This, in turn, has caused a significant accumulation of moisture, resulting in an increase in night temperatures across the state.
Pune Weather Update: Yellow Alert Stretches for 48 Hours
IMD’s issuance of a yellow alert specifically for Pune emphasizes the expected impact on the city. Residents are advised to be prepared for light to moderate-category rainfall during the next 48 hours, with thunder and lightning activities likely.
Recent data from IMD highlights temperature fluctuations in Pune, with the night temperature in Shivajinagar rising from 14.3 degrees Celsius on November 22 to 17.3 degrees Celsius on November 24. This notable increase indicates a rise in night time temperatures, contributing to the overall weather dynamics.
Statewide Yellow Alert: Konkan, Central Maharashtra, and Marathwada on Radar
The alert extends beyond Pune, encompassing all districts in Konkan and Central Maharashtra for November 25-26. Additionally, certain districts in Marathwada have also been alerted for potential rainfall during this period, showcasing the widespread impact of the weather conditions.
The IMD’s detailed forecast predicts rainfall within the next 24 hours for specific districts, namely Gadchiroli and Chandrapur. However, from the 27th onward, there is an expected decrease in rainfall conditions, with light to moderate rainfall confined to only nine districts in the north-central region. The city is already experiencing cloudy weather as moisture builds up in the atmosphere.
Mumbai Weather Update: IMD’s Yellow Alert Brings Forecast of Rainfall Till November 27
Mumbai, Thane, and Palghar find themselves under the influence of a ‘yellow’ alert issued by the IMD, anticipating thundershowers over the upcoming weekend. The forecast suggests a maximum temperature of around 24 degrees Celsius on Thursday.
Revisiting Mumbai’s weather history, the city experienced intense rainfall on November 9, affecting various areas. The IMD attributes this to a trough moving towards the Maharashtra coastline. The current forecast indicates a maximum temperature range of 32-36 degrees Celsius and a minimum temperature between 23-25 degrees Celsius for the upcoming week.
The Konkan administrative division, including Mumbai, is currently under the influence of an easterly trough. This trough, responsible for rain along the Tamil Nadu coast, is expected to move westward, passing over Kerala and neighboring regions. The forecast predicts rainfall in Mumbai between November 25 and 26 due to the extension of this trough.
