Pune, 21st February 2024: Pune will witness a significant drop in temperatures by approximately 3-4 degrees, with minimums expected to hover just below 10°C in the next seven days. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a forecast indicating a noticeable decrease in minimum temperatures across various parts of Pune district, marking the last notable chill this winter.


The upcoming weather shift is attributed to clear skies and the influx of northerly winds, which are anticipated to sweep across north-central Maharashtra, including Pune, starting Wednesday.


IMD projections suggest that temperatures may plunge to 9°C in Shivajinagar and 8°C in NDA by February 25-26. Other areas expected to experience cooler temperatures around February 24-26 include Pashan at 10°C, Lohegaon at 12°C, Chinchwad at 15°C, and Magarpatta at 16°C.


As of now, current minimum temperatures in various parts of the city range from 13°C to 21°C.


Anupam Kashyapi, the head of the weather forecasting division at IMD Pune, explained, “The western disturbance is moving away eastward, leading to clearing weather during this phase. Relative humidity levels have dropped, and northerly winds amidst clear skies have commenced. Consequently, a decline in minimum temperatures is anticipated not only over central India but also in our state, including the city.”


Presently, the maximum temperature in the city hovers around 34°C, while the minimum temperature is approximately 13°C.
