Monsoon rains have been blessing Andhra Pradesh from a long time now and it seems that rain gods are pretty happy and thus are showering upon the southern state of Andhra Pradesh. From the last 24-48 hours also, good rains had occurred over the state, mainly in the districts in the coastal belt of the state.
Rains of varied intensity but mostly heavy downpour occurred in the last 24 hours over parts of Andhra Pradesh, particularly over the coastal regions. Further, these showers are likely to continue over the state.
In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Thursday, Tuni recorded heavy showers of 53 mm, Narsapur 50 mm, Kalingapatnam 47 mm, Bapatla 46 mm, Kurnool 44 mm and Machilipatnam witnessed 43 m of rains. Vishakhapatnam too observed light traces of rains.
The reason for these showers as per Skymet Weather can be attributed to a trough that is extending from the central parts of the country up to coastal Andhra Pradesh across Telangana. An active Monsoon surge over Telangana, Andhra Pradesh including Rayalaseema can also be a contributing factor for these good showers.
These rains are expected to continue lashing the state for the next 24 hours but will reduce gradually thereafter. Not much variations in the temperature profile are anticipated for the next 48 hours. Moreover, breezy weather condition will prevail along the coastal belt of the state.
As on June 15, Coastal Andhra Pradesh is 43% rain surplus while Rayalaseema is 13% rain surplus. And these ongoing rains will contribute in increasing the surplus statistics of the state.
