Pune, 13th August 2023: The state of Maharashtra is bracing itself for a fresh round of rainfall as conducive conditions are poised to commence from August 13 onward. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has signaled the potential for heavy to very heavy rainfall in isolated sectors of the Konkan region and specific areas of Vidarbha.

Starting from August 15, an expanded and intensified pattern of precipitation is predicted to blanket the state, characterized by heightened rain levels over a condensed timeframe.

Despite substantial rainfall witnessed across many locales during the final week of July, the onset of August witnessed a dip in overall rainfall volume. IMD assessments indicate that sporadic rainfall was recorded in the state until August 4, followed by a subsequent dry spell from August 4 to August 9. This lull in rainfall activity has been attributed to the influence of El Nino.

Certain districts within the Marathwada region have reported rain statistics below projected levels. While regions like Mumbai, Palghar, Thane, Raigad, and Nanded have encountered favorable precipitation, areas such as Satara, Sangli, Ahmednagar, Aurangabad, Beed, Jalna, Hingoli, Akola, and Jalgaon are still awaiting substantial downpours.

The IMD’s predictions point toward a revival of rainfall across the state post August 20. Notably, the IMD has unveiled a four-week monsoon forecast for the entire country, elucidating a nuanced pattern. The initial fortnight is anticipated to experience below-average rainfall in multiple regions, followed by a resurgence of normal rainfall levels in the subsequent two weeks. This forecast encompasses the period from August 11 to September 7.

As Maharashtra readies itself for another phase of rainfall, both residents and authorities are advised to maintain vigilance and prepare for shifting weather dynamics in the weeks ahead.
