Bangalore receives rain after prolonged dry spellBangalore rains had displayed a power packed performance during the months of June and July. In fact, rains were in the surplus category during both of these months. However, Monsoon rains took a backseat in the month of August.

In fact, the capital city of Karnataka was only able to receive 85 mm of rains against its monthly mean of 142.5 mm in August.

The month of September brought some more bad news for the residents of Bangalore. In fact, rains remained far and few from the garden city.

However, rain gods have bestowed some kindness over the residents and light to moderate rains were recorded over the city. During the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Friday, Bangalore Airport recorded a good 13 mm of rainfall. The city recorded light spells of 1.4 mm.

These rains can be attributed to a cyclonic circulation which has developed in the west-central Bay and is currently stationed over the Odisha coast. Moisture incursion has increased over the region due to this weather system.

During the next 24 hours, light Monsoon rains may occur over the city as the weather system is expected to persist. So far, ten days have passed by and the city has not even been able to come slightly closer to its monthly mean.
