"The weather stations across Maharashtra recorded a significant rise in the minimum temperature, which has kept the nights warmer. The extra moisture from the Arabian sea and the bay of Bengal have led to formation of clouds over state of Maharashtra. The same conditions will prevail for the next two days," Dr A K Srivastav, Head, Climate Monitoring and Analysis group, IMD, Pune, told PTI today.
"It is a clear indication of clouds trapping the heat which has increased the minimum temperature across the state. It is a normal situation for April," he said.
The IMD (India Meteorological Department) report also pointed out that Akola reported the highest maximum temperature at 41.1 degree Celsius today in Maharashtra.
The ongoing weather conditions have also led to unseasonal showers in some parts of Maharashtra for the last 3-4 days. The areas include central Maharashtra, Vidarbha and parts of western Maharashtra.
