During the evening hours on Friday, Nagpur city experienced sudden short light rainfall.
Thunderstorms with lightning and light to moderate rainfall are very likely at isolated places over the Nagpur and Wardha districts of Vidarbha.
Dr. Praveen Kumar, Scientist-C, Regional Meteorological Centre, India Meteorological Department in conversation with The Live Nagpur told “The sudden rainfall is caused due to the very recent cyclonic storm ‘Mandous’ over the Bay of Bengal. The rainfall is just moisture built-up in the atmosphere. This is called a localized phenomenon.”
