Since the beginning of July, the offshore trough is persisting along Coastal Karnataka. However, sometimes it becomes active giving heavy rains while when it is feeble, rainfall reduces. Moderate to heavy showers have been occurring over the coastal districts for the past many days.
In wake of the absence of any significant weather system over the interior parts of the state, subdued rains are being witnessed by South Interior Karnataka as well as North Interior Karnataka. Though, occasional moderate spells of rains did make an appearance over the northern districts.
As per Skymet Weather, North Interior Karnataka normally receives rainfall activity from the westerly moving system which originates in the Bay of Bengal as well as the Monsoon surge from the Arabian Sea. Recently, we have not seen any weather system which would give good rains over the North Interior Karnataka.
Similarly, due to the absence of any weather system, South Interior Karnataka has witnessed light showers. In fact, Bengaluru has also received occasional showers. The intensity of these rains has been mostly light barring one or two occasions.
In the past day, rains were widespread along the coast of Karnataka but scanty in the interior regions. In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday, Agumbe recorded heavy rain to the tune of 128.4 mm followed by Madikeri at 94 mm of rains. In the same time span, Belagavi witnessed 26.9 mm of rain, Mangaluru 23.5 mm, Karwar 11.4 mm, Honnavar 7.5 mm, Kalaburgi 5.6 mm and Mysuru 2.2 mm of rains. In fact, Bengaluru also observed patches of rains.
Now also we do not foresee any significant weather activity over the interior parts of Karnataka. However, Coastal regions of Karnataka will continue to witness light to moderate rain with few heavy spells in wake of the offshore trough persisting along the West Coast.
