This summer, there has been cloudy weather for a long time with cloudy weather experienced in the afternoons and evenings on days the mornings saw clear skies. Wind discontinuity along with western disturbances caused large-scale moisture incursion over the state throughout March and April. As a result, temperatures were constantly at normal to below-normal levels except for a few instances when they reached as high as 40 degrees Celsius. In May too, temperatures were below normal at the beginning of the month but gradually rose mid-month. Since the past two days however, temperatures have begun to decrease. On Wednesday, Shivajinagar recorded a maximum temperature of 37 degrees Celsius whereas on Thursday, it recorded a maximum temperature of 36.2 degrees Celsius.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has also noted a rise in relative humidity in Pune city which is causing discomfort to the citizens. Anupam Kashyapi, head of the weather and forecasting department, IMD, said, “This year, there were constant moisture incursions from the Bay of Bengal as well as from the Arabian Sea. Hence, the amount of moisture was almost double. This helped in reduction of temperature. However, due to the higher relative humidity level, it feels like higher temperatures. Which means that if the temperature is 38 degrees Celsius, it feels like 40 to 41 degrees Celsius. This has caused discomfort to the citizens.”
