Bengaluru Receives Record Rainfall, Heading For All Time High Monthly Rainfall

November 19, 2021 3:31 PM |

As expected and emancipated, silicon city Bengaluru has received record rainfall in the past 24hr.  The international airport at Bengaluru measured 90.6mm rainfall in 24hr, ending 8.30am today. Till yesterday, the total rainfall of 155mm in November, so far, itself was thrice the normal. With nearly 3 digit rainfall in the past 24hr, the monthly total goes up to 245.6mm against the monthly normal of 48.9mm. 

November 2015 has gone on record to be the rainiest with 296.4mm rainfall. The earlier record of 252.2mm was beaten convincingly with nearly 6 times of long period average rainfall. November 2021 is still short of this record by about 51mm.  However, there are still about 2 weeks to go and therefore  a fair chance to reach or cross this magic figure of 297mm. 

The depression over Bay of Bengal resulting  deluge over south India has moved inland and also weakened to a low pressure area. Accordingly, the spread and intensity will reduce in the subsequent 24hr. However, moderate rainfall will continue for the next 3 days over many parts of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. This rainfall belt will also extend to Goa, Konkan and Madhya Maharashtra, albeit with light to moderate intensity. 
Bengaluru, the capital city of Karnataka, will continue to receive moderate showers over the next few days.

Intermittent rain over most parts of the city and suburbs may amount to a total of 50mm or more in the remaining days of November. Weather activity of rain and showers will mainly be confined to evening and night from tomorrow onwards.
