This time it hasn’t been quite a rainy Monsoon for the city of Bengaluru. While June managed to see normal rainfall activity, the month of July was mostly dry except for some good rains only in the last 24 hours. Till now, Bengaluru has received 54 mm rains against the normal of 113 mm, midway through the month.
The only silver lining to the cloud comes in the weather forecast for the next week with a prediction of light to moderate rains almost every day for the next some days.
These rains will be in the association of a Low-Pressure Area formed in Bay of Bengal and adjoining coastal parts of India. This system will lead to a change in wind direction over South India and lead to changed weather as an offshoot.
The weather will remain quite pleasant. Temperatures in afternoon will not be more than 30°C and minimums will remain close to 21°-22°C.
Monsoon season isn’t associated with any heavy rainfall activity back in the city of Bengaluru. The first three months of June, July and August receive normal rainfall activity close to 100 mm. The rains pick up only around the month of September when the city receives precipitation close to 212 mm. September is also the rainiest month for the city.
Though Bengaluru lies in Northeast Monsoon pocket, it doesn’t receive much rains in this season and rainfall remains mild only. Bengaluru observes very light rain activities from December to March and the rainfall usually picks up April onward.
