781mm downpour this rainstorm is Pune’s second best in 10 years

The four-month downpour quantum for Pune for the season has just outperformed the precipitation figures recorded during most years in the most recent decade.

Pune city’s (Shivajinagar) complete precipitation so far this rainstorm has contacted 781mm, which is among the two most elevated decadal quantum of storm downpour up until now.

Lohegaon and Pashan too have recorded comparable quantum, at 786 mm and 750 mm till now. There are six days before the storm season closes.

A year ago’s storm precipitation till September was 1,071.9mm, the most elevated in the most recent decade. The extreme downpour spells and thundershowers, incited by an ideal opportunity to time rising day temperatures during the rainstorm have been one reason for the occasional downpour quantum to cross 500mm during the last two storms in Pune.

Anupam Kashyapi, head of climate, India Meteorological Department (IMD) Pune revealed to TOI that June this year recorded some great precipitation spells, beginning from twister Nisarga, and later, solid westerly breezes part and pressed isobars over the Arabian Sea.

“July finished on a powerless note, yet the downpours during August more than compensated for July’s beneath typical downpour. Two or three low weight frameworks shaped over the Bay of Bengal in August, which pushed up precipitation figures in Pune city and area essentially,” he included.

By August 21, over 162.4mm and 262.1mm abundance downpour (far beyond the ordinary quantum till that period) was recorded in two Pune areas, Shivajinagar and Lohegaon from June 1 till August 21 individually, with Pune previously accepting its whole storm standard for 2020 till August 21.

Kashyapi said that September saw some extreme downpour spells went with roar notwithstanding a couple of low weight areas/trough/upper air cyclonic flows. The extraordinary spells were in some cases convective in nature and unloaded a decent measure of precipitation in twofold digits now and again in parts of the city.
