Andhra Pradesh has been recording on and off good rains for past many days. As per weather data, Coastal Andhra Pradesh has been recorded some good rain and thundershowers, while Rayalseema which has been dry has also started recording moderate to heavy showers during the last two to three days.
However, Monsoon rains are now all set to pick up pace. According to the weathermen in Skymet Weather, the low pressure area over east central parts of Bay of Bengal is most likely to strengthen into a depression. It is then likely to move towards North Andhra Pradesh and South Odisha Coast.
Owing to this, we expect significant increase in the rainfall activities over the state, particularly over North Andhra Pradesh that would get to see heavy showers. Meanwhile, light to moderate showers will go on over Rayalaseema.
By September 22, Monsoon rains would start receding from the entire Andhra Pradesh on account of westerly movement of the weather system towards Maharashtra and adjoining parts of Madhya Pradesh.
As on September 18, Andhra Pradesh has been normal with mere deficiency of 8%. Major contribution came from Coastal Andhra Pradesh which at present is surplus by 4%. Rayalaseema is primarily responsible for deficiency in the state as it is exceptionally deficient by 35%.
