The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a heavy rainfall warning for the state of Telangana for the next three days – September 1 to September 3. The IMD stated that isolated areas in Adilabad, Asifabad, Nirmal, Mancherial, Nizamabad, Karimnagar, Jagtial, Rajanna-Sircilla, Pedapalle, Mulugu, Khammam, Warangal, Mahabubnagar, Nalgonda, Suryapet and other districts will witness heavy rainfall.

The IMD stated that since the south-west monsoon is active in Telangana, most parts of the state received rainfall on Friday.

According to IMD, many districts in the state received ‘legend’ (a term used when more than heavy rainfall is recorded) rainfall, while Asifabad and Bhuvanagiri recorded deficit rainfall on Friday. Adilabad, Kamareddy, Malkajgiri and Siddipet recorded ‘normal’ rainfall.

Similarly, a weather warning has been issued for the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh as well. IMD predicted that Yanam district in the state will receive heavy rainfall for the next two days.

IMD stated that the upper air cyclonic circulation over south Coastal Andhra Pradesh and the neighbourhood (between 5.8 and 7.6 km above mean sea level) will be the cause for heavy rainfall.

“A low-pressure area is very likely to develop over north and adjoining west-central Bay of Bengal during next 48 hours and is likely to become more marked thereafter,” IMD observed.

Meanwhile, in Telangana, Friday saw Sultanabad in Pedapalle district in Telangana receiving the highest rainfall of 8 cm followed by Jogipet in Sangareddy at 7 cm. On Saturday, Khammam recorded the highest maximum temperature of 35 degree Celsius followed by Adilabad at 34.6 degree Celsius, Ramagundam 34 degrees, Mahabubnagar 33.3, Badrachalam 33.2, Nizamabad 33, Hanamkonda 32.5, Medak 31.2, Hakimpet 30.8 and Nalgonda 30.4.
