Pune, June 15, 2023 – The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has announced that the southwest monsoon is expected to intensify in Pune, Maharashtra, starting from June 20. As per the latest update, only one percent of the state remains unaffected by the monsoon, although certain regions continue to experience rainfall deficiency.

Anupam Kashyapi, the head of the weather forecasting department at IMD Pune, discussed the current monsoon conditions and its anticipated progression. Despite its initially weak onset, the monsoon is projected to gain momentum in Maharashtra, with active monsoon conditions expected from June 19 onwards.

“From June 19, the monsoon will become active over Konkan and Goa, central Maharashtra, including Pune district and city. The presence of strong westerlies from the Arabian Sea will facilitate moisture incursion and the development of an offshore trough. Marathwada and Vidarbha will also experience increased rainfall as moisture from the Bay of Bengal reaches these regions,” explained Kashyapi.
