Now, the conditions are still favourable for more rains to lash Bengaluru on Friday as well. According to Skymet Weather, the trough continues to extend from Coastal Odisha till Comorin region across Interior Karnataka.
The trough has been infusing moisture over the city, due to which the weather at present is partly cloudy. Now, as the mercury peaks during the afternoon, it leads to formation of convective clouds over the city during the late afternoon or evening. This the typical feature of pre-Monsoon season.
