Hyderabad, Telangana gear up for heavy rains, hailstorm today

Light rains to make an appearance over Hyderabad

It’s been more than a month now that the weather over Andhra Pradesh and Telangana is dry with no signs of rain. Minimums over these states were significantly below normal until January 21. Now, the scenario has changed and rains are all set to lash the state including capital city of Hyderabad.

Change in winds from cold to comparatively warm and humid winds have increased minimums over the area. Moreover, a Confluence Zone has developed from Chhattisgarh to Karnataka across Telangana. Therefore, we expect rains to commence over many parts of Telangana including the city of Hyderabad. Scattered light to moderate rains will then reach the state of Andhra Pradesh but the intensity be less in comparison.

Already the northern districts of Telangana including that of Nizamabad has received light rains. Gradually, these rains will reach central and southern districts as well. Thundershower activities at a few places also cannot be ruled out. Scattered light to moderate rains will then reach the state of Andhra Pradesh but the intensity be less in comparison.

According to weathermen, moderate to heavy rains are likely to lash many parts of Telangana during the next 24 hours. These showers would be accompanied with strong winds and hailstorm.

Since, last two years (in 2017 and 2018) the month of January has remained dry for the city of Hyderabad. Looking back at the data- out of the last ten years, five times Hyderabad didn’t receive any rains in January. This time it seems, the charts are in favor of rains as we expect light to moderate rain and thundershower activities to occur over Hyderabad by today evening. Isolated pockets of the city may also receive hailstorm.

Crop Damage 

Rainfall is beneficial for the ongoing crops of pulses, wheat, onion and the various types of regional vegetables grown in this area. Hailstorm, however, might pose a risk. As of now, any big damages are ruled out as only isolated pockets are at alert against such activities.

These upcoming rains can only be tagged as ‘non-seasonal’ as this is not one of the rainy seasons for these states. It only rains at this time of the year when either there is a North-South Trough or either a Confluence Zone has developed. This time, it turns out it’s the second case.
