A confluence zone was persisting over Andhra Pradesh and Telangana that was extending from eastern parts of the country up to Interior Tamil Nadu. This system kept oscillating east-west and at times it affected Telangana and sometimes Andhra Pradesh.
Generally, at this time of the year, a confluence zone or a north-south trough forms that affects Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. At times, it is seen affecting Vidarbha also but now we expect this trough to weaken and lead to dry weather conditions over most parts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana in the coming two to three days. Although experts say that scattered pre-Monsoon rains would continue over these states till April 24.
Today onward, the temperatures would start rising. Currently, the temperatures in Andhra Pradesh are near normal while many parts of Telangana are witnessing below normal temperatures. In the next couple of days both day and night temperatures in the region are expected to rise now. Maximums in Andhra Pradesh are expected to record above normal by 2-3 degrees.
In the last 24 hours, Hyderabad witnessed 3.1 mm of rain and the maximum settled at 35.7°C which is three degrees below normal. Whereas, Anantapur in Andhra Pradesh recorded 3.7 mm of rain and day temp of 41.2°C, which is marginally above normal. Nellore too witnessed 0.8 mm of rains with maximums settling at 37.4°C, two degrees below normal.
Telangana which was large deficient in the beginning of April is now deficient by 33%. The deficiency levels have improved because of the intermittent pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers in parts of Telangana since last many days.
While Coastal Andhra Pradesh is now in normal rain category with a deficiency of just 11% (+/-19%) and Rayalaseema is large deficient by 65%. The weather of Rayalaseema remained dry throughout the season however, Rayalaseema received scattered rain and thundershowers in past 24 hours.
