This week, Maharashtra was hit by the first unseasonably wet spell of the 2022 summer season, which flooded various subdivisions. Similar conditions are expected to continue over the following 24 hours in the city’s major neighborhoods.
Rainfall and thunderstorms were recorded by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) over Marathwada, Vidarbha, and Madhya Maharashtra on Wednesday. The combined effect of an easterly trough from Kerala to north Madhya Maharashtra and the confluence of winds over Central India generated this wet weather.
