Earlier on Thursday, Pune was lashed with heavy rains due to a cyclonic circulation over the northeast Arabian Sea and adjoining Gujarat reason, resulting in moisture incursion.

Although the showers may not be heavy, they are expected to provide much-needed relief from the scorching temperatures. The official mentioned that the rain might marginally decrease temperatures, which have already dipped below 40°C in some parts of the city due to increased moisture and cloud cover.
