On Thursday, April 29, predicting a severe weather alert for Maharashtra over the next four days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) stated that areas of Marathwada, Madhya Maharashtra and Vidarbha likely to receive heavy showers and hailstorms.

According to reports, a spokesperson working with the regional forecasting centre in Mumbai cautioned that thunderstorm activity in interior Maharashtra will likely intensify between May 29 and May 2. “Thunderstorm with lightning, rain and gusty winds,” are to be expected in these regions.

Moreover, earlier on Wednesday, April 28, officials stated that places like Mumbai and Palghar districts, though expected to remain ‘dry’ as per IMD’s forecast, will continue to see drizzles and cloudy weather till at least May 2. However, the rest of the Konkan coast will see rain and thundershowers.

In addition, the IMD has predicted long-term rainfall from June to September. The meteorological department further forecasted favourable monsoon in India due to favourable changes in the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean.

The monsoon season in India usually lasts from June-September with large areas of western and central India receiving more than 90 per cent of their total annual precipitation during the period, and southern and northwestern India receiving 50 per cent to 75 per cent of their total annual rainfall. This season happens to be very important for the farmers as the crops depend on this period to provide adequate supply to the citizens throughout the year.
