Searing Heatwave Engulfs Pune District, Relief Unlikely for Next Few Days

emperatures soar above 40°C in some areas, minimum temperatures also unusually high. Cloudy skies offer no respite.

The scorching sun and an unexpected lack of relief from clouds have combined to create a widespread heatwave gripping Pune district, including Pune city. Residents are sweltering under oppressive conditions, with reports from the eastern parts of the district indicating temperatures exceeding a staggering 40 degrees Celsius in many areas.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) offers little hope for immediate relief, predicting that the heat will persist throughout both day and night. Cloudy skies, typically a source of respite from the sun’s glare, are expected to prevail during the afternoons, providing scant comfort. Adding to the discomfort, minimum temperatures have climbed above 22 degrees Celsius, making for uncomfortably warm nights.

This intensified heatwave is part of a larger weather pattern affecting the state of Maharashtra. While Pune district bears the brunt of the scorching temperatures, Vidarbha and Marathwada regions are also experiencing significant surges in maximum temperatures. Pune itself has recorded an average minimum temperature of 22.5 degrees Celsius, with highs reaching a scorching 38.8 degrees Celsius. Lonavla, a hill station typically offering cooler climes, has seen a comparatively lower maximum temperature of 34 degrees Celsius.

The heatwave is expected to persist for the next couple of days, posing significant challenges for agricultural activities and related businesses due to the persistent cloud cover.
