The city on Wednesday saw a lot of wind activity in most places,along with incessant rains.

Even as the wind velocity in the city on Tuesday was five nautical miles per hour (knots),it was low on Wednesday but could continue to scale up with the monsoon activity increasing in central Maharashtra.

With last week seeing wind velocity at 10 knots,Khole said that it would increase upto 15 knots although she maintained that there was no normal mean which can ascertain whether the velocity is above or below normal.

Medha Khole,director (weather central),said that increased wind velocity would result in more rains and this was quite common during the monsoon season. On Wednesday,the city recorded 32.4 mm rainfall.
