Light rain and thundershowers likely in Vidarbha on February 14 and 15

The cold wave conditions made a fresh comeback in the region as the city recorded the lowest minimum temperature at 6.3 degree Celsius on Sunday. It was eight degrees below normal, the highest fall in February, so far.
Nagpurians are weathering biting chill for last couple of days. Minimum temperature recorded in the past 72 hours was 14.8 degree Celsius on Friday and 8.9 degree on Saturday.

According to Skymet Weather, “An active western disturbance was present over North and Northwest India. Due to this  system, moderate to heavy rain and snowfall over hills while hailstorm occurred over plains of  the country.” In the wake of this system, between February 5 and 8, temperatures decreased significantly over Central India including Maharashtra. As there was a change in the wind direction, dry and cold winds from north  direction started affecting Northwest Maharashtra from February 7 onward.

In the presence of cold air mass, the temperatures decreased significantly over Northwest and Northern parts of Maharashtra including central Maharashtra. The low temperatures also resulted in cold wave conditions over central Maharashtra and northwest Maharashtra. In wake of an upper air trough, which is developing along the western coast, the wind profile now will undergo a change over entire Maharashtra. As a result, temperature pattern will steadily rise.

Moreover, with the approaching of a new system, light rain and thundershower activities will occur at some places over South Madhya Maharashtra during next 24 hours.
Thereafter, the weather pattern will shift northwards towards North Madhya Maharashtra and same weather activity on February 12 as well.  February 13 onward, weather will become dry over entire State with rise in temperatures.  However, the Vidarbha region will experience light rain and thundershowers on February 14 and 15.
