City limits, however, will experience light intensity rainfall on the day.
Since Thursday, the city’s weather has moved from sunny to cloudy sky conditions. The 24-hour rainfall on Friday was Shivajinagar – 3.7mm, Lohegaon – 3.2mm and Pashan – 2mm.
Due to the prolonged dry spell since the third week of June, the city’s seasonal rainfall now stands at 12.7 per cent below normal.
With the slow transition to active phase, there are conditions developing for the revival of the southwest monsoon. As a result, rainfall activity over Maharashtra and Pune is set to improve in the coming days.
