Pune Faces Cold Wave As Minimum Temperature Drops To Record Low

Share this News:

Pune, 24th October 2023: The recent drop in minimum temperatures in Pune has taken a U-turn, plunging the city into a cold wave. According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), the minimum temperature is anticipated to drop further in the next two days, potentially intensifying the cold wave.

This shift in weather is likely to reduce the impact of the ‘October Heat’ previously experienced in the city. While dry weather conditions prevailed as the rains subsided, the minimum temperature had been on a continuous rise for the past week, hovering approximately 3 degrees above the norm. Generally, Pune typically registered minimum temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius.

However, on Monday, the city experienced an all-time low minimum temperature for October, reaching 18.2 degrees Celsius. Historically, Pune had not recorded such a low minimum temperature during October. The city usually saw minimum temperatures no less than 19 degrees Celsius.

The recent drop was primarily attributed to partly cloudy conditions. On the previous Sunday, the minimum temperature had risen by four degrees. Concurrently, the maximum temperature had been fluctuating, subjecting Pune residents to both heat and cold.

According to the Meteorological Department, dry weather is expected to persist in Pune and its neighboring regions for the upcoming week. The city’s minimum temperature is projected to decrease by approximately 1-2 degrees Celsius in the next two days.

In various parts of the state, the minimum temperature is also beginning to decline. Jalgaon reported the lowest temperature in the state, hitting 15 degrees Celsius on Monday. In Vidarbha, Madhya Maharashtra, and Marathwada, the minimum temperature dropped slightly below average in several areas.

Following the formation of Cyclone ‘Tej’ in the Arabian Sea, there is now potential for another cyclone to develop in the Bay of Bengal. A low-pressure system is currently active over the Bay of Bengal, with its intensity steadily increasing. As a result, this system may transform into a cyclone by Tuesday and is expected to progress towards Bangladesh. The Meteorological Department assured that Maharashtra faced no immediate threat from this cyclonic activity.

Cyclone ‘Tej’ poses no danger to India’s west coast and currently holds a magnitude of 110 knots. The cyclone is forecasted to make landfall on the coast of Yemen. Vineet Kumar of the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre (JTWC) noted that five cyclones have formed in different regions across the globe, with two more cyclones on the verge of development.
