The IMD said that moderate spells of rain very likely to occur at isolated places in the districts of Raigad, Thane, Mumbai, Ratnagiri ,Sindhudurg, Kolhapur, Pune, Nashik during next 3-4 hours.

Rain in November-December is not a usual feature in Maharashtra. However, when a cyclonic circulation lies over the southeast and the Eastcentral Arabian Sea, its interaction with a western disturbance - a cyclonic circulation that originates in the Mediterranean, traverses across Central Asia and gives rain and snow over north India - brings a lot of moisture, Sathi Devi, head of the National Weather Forecasting Centre (NWFC) of the IMD said.

"Due to these two systems, widespread rain with heavy to very heavy precipitation is likely over Gujarat, north central Maharashtra and north Konkan on Wednesday," she added.
