Heavy to very heavy rainfall lashed Hyderabad on Sunday and the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning for three-day heavy rainfall throughout the state, according to a report in the Times of India.
The maximum temperature in the city came down to 32.5 degrees from 35 degrees earlier.
Several areas such as Alwal, Trimulgherry, Sainikpuri, Malkajgiri and Marredpally were badly affected.
The Telangana State Development Planning Society deployed rain gauges which measured the rainfall received by Alwar at 25mm followed by Kukatpally at 18mm.
Heavy rain is likely to occur at isolated districts in all districts of Telangana, as per the warning issued by the IMD.
Experts have said that this is due to the increased influence of the monsoon over areas like Vidarbha, coastal AP and Odisha.
â€œIt is not just the monsoon activity that has resulted in rains, there is also a cyclonic circulation that is located over the Northwest Bay of Bengal off Odisha.This system, is helping blow humid wind in the southerly-southwesterly direction over the landmass. These winds are increasing the level of moisture in the air, and making it conducive for the formation of cumulonimbus clouds,â€œ said Mahesh Palawat, chief meteorologist, Skymet.
Due to a low pressure area which has formed over northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining coastal Odisha and Gangetic West Bengal, all districts of coastal Andhra are also likely to witness heavy rainfall at isolated places, as per a report in The Hindu.
According to a spokesperson of the Cyclone Warning Centre (CWC) in Vizag, light to moderate rain or thundershowers may be seen at several places in coastal AP and at isolated places in Rayalaseema during the next two days.
