Drought in South India

At present, a large variation of weather pattern is being seen over the Indian mainland. While some areas are flooding under Monsoon rains, others are on the verge of drought-like conditions. Especially the states like that of Tamil Nadu, Rayalaseema and interior Karnataka are witnessing dry weather since months now.

It's been almost two weeks since the onset of Monson over these regions. However, these states are yet to see one good spell of Monsoon rain at present.

Looking at the rain figures, Tamil Nadu was deficient by 38% till June. In just three days of July the deficiency has now risen to 42%. South Interior Karnataka has a similar story. The state is currently deficient by 28% while Rayalaseema 25% deficient of Monsoon rain.

Last two days have been rather dry over the entire region. Although its typical of Monsoon season that the weather doesn’t go completely dry altogether.

The central and eastern parts of these pockets are going to see hardly any rains in the next two days and only light patchy rains are possible in the rest of the days as well. As of now, no good spell is in sight.

Skymet extends caution to the residents in Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Karnataka as there is hardly any relief is in sight for these areas.

July 10 onward, some scattered moderate rains are a possibility. However, this spell will not be good enough to meet the deficiency or even the average figure.
