The India Meteorological Department on Sunday forecast that the city would encounter less cold with shady and cloudy climate conditions for the following not many days.
The breezes — the westerlies, the easterlies and the southerlies — have affected climate conditions over all locales, including Madhya Maharashtra, which incorporate Pune area right now, met authorities said.
“Due to this wind pattern, cloudy condition will remain over the state. North Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada and Konkan and Goa will receive light to moderate rainfall till Wednesday,” a senior IMD Pune official said.
On Sunday, the city experienced shady and cloudy conditions from morning.
Least temperatures were probably going to stay around 18°C till December 17 in Pune and neighboring regions. Both least and the most extreme temperatures over numerous parts in the state would float better than average, the met authorities said.
Shivajinagar and Lohegaon observatories recorded 18.7°C and 19.4°C least temperatures, which were better than average by 7.5 degrees Celsius and 6.4 degree Celsius, separately.
“This trend will continue throughout the week, especially with the minimum temperatures,” the official said.
The state has not experienced predictable chilly climate conditions in this season, up until now.
“In last fortnight, two cyclones — Nivar and Burevi — formed in Bay of Bengal, had brought in moisture content over the southern peninsula region and over Maharashtra. This phenomenon had an impact on maximum and minimum temperatures,” the official said.
Nonetheless, IMD’s Extended Range Forecast showed the virus conditions were probably going to reemerge over the state simply after December 18.
