Hyderabad Braces For More Rains Today

Telangana has received surplus rains 25.9cm against the normal 14.7cm in the past three days - Sakshi Post

Hyderabad: The cyclonic circulation persisting over south Odisha is triggering thunderstorm conditions over Telangana. The south-west monsoon currents have gained strength due to this upper cyclonic pressure. Telengana is under thunderstorm warning up to October 5. Several districts including the capital city will receive heavy to very high intensity rainfall up to Thursday, accompanied by thunder and lightning, according to IMD official Ms Nagamani.

The rain intensity will once again increase around October 7 and the city will witness heavy to very heavy rains. These showers will be due to the formation of fresh cyclonic circulation which would be forming over the Odisha coast. The system is most likely to move in a westerly direction, towards Telangana.

In the last 24 hours, the south-west monsoon currents have been active over Telangana. In the past three days, the state has received surplus rains; the total average recorded so far across all the districts is 25.9cm against the normal 14.7cm.

Hyderabad, Mahbub Nagar, Warangal, Ranga Reddy, Nalgonda and Medak have received excessive rain in the last three days. Day temperature dropped considerably due to the thunderstorm prevailing over the state. The night temperature was around 20-21 degrees Celsius.

The withdrawal of the south-west monsoon is expected to take place on October 15. But the north-east monsoon is round the corner, when many areas of the southern peninsular such as Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu receive rains.
