Respite from rains after two days: IMD


August 01, 2005 14:30 IST

The India Meteorological Department in Pune on Monday said there is a possibility of Maharashtra getting respite from rains after two days.

"A depression that had moved in from north Bay of Bengal is causing heavy rainfall in Maharashtra. As the depression has weakened and presently lay over central parts of Madhya Pradesh, there is a possibility of Maharashtra getting respite from rains after two days," IMD director A B Mazumdar told PTI.

However, as the depression could move further towards a westerly direction from central Madhya Pradesh, rainfall could occur in some areas of Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and even Maharashtra even after two days, he said.

There has been widespread rainfall throughout Maharashtra particularly entire Madhya Maharashtra, Marathwada and Konkan regions for the last one week.

However, the rainfall may shift north and would be very very heavy in northern Maharashtra, IMD sources said.
