I am hearing of light rains in Pune again, can anyone confirm this?

Abhijit said...

@ Ron. Pune had light rain with loud thundering & severe lightning. Mainly NE of Pune sububrs had heavy fall around Kharadi- Wagholi with gusty winds..
Some city region rainfall till 8.30pm today :

Pashan(West Pune) AWS 3mm
Pune AP 1mm
Pune 0.2mm

Before that it was warm in afternoon with max temp for Pune 34.1c & Pune AP 34.0c today.


Mumbai was also warmer with S'cruz max 34.3c & down south tip Colaba was pleasant at 29.8c today!!
So difference of 4.5c between island like S. Mumbai & N. Mumbai suburbs !!

Maharashtra almost all places over Marathwada/Vidarbha received around 200mm of rain since March !!!
What is happening to southern India- hot summer - 37-38degrees and TN is grappling with serious drought! Huge climate change taking its course. Most serious impact SE India.
