Shivajinagar, 22nd January 2024: Pune is set to encounter a decline in temperature over the next two to three days, as announced by officials from the India Meteorological Department (IMD) on Sunday. The primary cause behind this change is the influence of cooler northern winds, impacting the overall weather conditions in the state, including the Madhya Maharashtra region.
An official explained, “The minimum temperatures in the city and other parts of the state are expected to decrease by 2-3° Celsius in the coming days due to the effects of northerly winds and clear sky conditions.”
The official highlighted the current atmospheric conditions, stating that a trough line over the state has formed from South Karnataka to North Vidarbha. Additionally, increased humidity over Konkan and adjacent regions is attributed to upper air circulation.
According to the IMD report, Pune will witness dry weather with a clear sky for the next 72 hours. Foggy conditions were observed in several areas on Sunday morning, following the lowest recorded temperature of the season at 10.8° Celsius in Shivajinagar on January 16.
Although Shivajinagar and Lohegaon experienced above-normal minimum temperatures on Sunday, with Shivajinagar at 12.8° Celsius (1.7° Celsius above average) and Lohegaon at 15.2° Celsius (2.2° Celsius above normal), the city is anticipated to encounter morning haze until January 23.
“The minimum temperature is expected to hover between 12-13° Celsius until January 27,” the official added, providing insights into the weather forecast for the upcoming week.
