Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, both these states are rain deficient by a whopping value for the month of October. Andhra Pradesh is deficient by 71% and Telangana by 81%. In the past 24 hours, Coastal Andhra Pradesh witnessed isolated light rains. The rains were experienced due to a trough extending from Southwest Bay of Bengal to Northwest Bay of Bengal across Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Odisha coast.
We now expect isolated light rains to occur over coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh. However, state of Telangana would remain dry and warm. Currently, day temperatures of both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh are above normal by 2-4 degree-Celsius. Whereas, minimums of Telangana are below normal by 2-4 degree-Celsius. Many parts of Andhra Pradesh have also recorded minimums below normal by 2-3 degree-Celsius.
The variation between day and night temperatures is very high, i.e. diurnal variation is around 13-14 degree-Celsius. The day temperature is very high, and nights are cool. We expect a further drop in minimum temperatures in Telangana in coming two to three days as the dry winds from North and Northeast would commence over the state and sky would also remain clear.
The minimum temperatures of Coastal Andhra Pradesh would drop by 1-2 degree-Celsius after 24-48 hours. Since the sky is expected to become clear in another 1-2 days, we don’t expect any improvement in the percentage of rain deficiency. Dry weather would continue to persist for next few days over these two states.
