Hopes Dying For Bengaluru Rains In April, Mercury Soar On Weekend

April 23, 2024 2:56 PM |

The capital city of Bengaluru has remained completely dry during this pre-monsoon season. Actually, the trail started much earlier, when the city remained parched during the winter months of Jan and Feb as well. Slight fleeting showers in the first week of Jan and a drought thereafter. Water woes are likely to continue, as there are hardly any hopes, even on the horizon for conciliatory showers in April.

Earlier, the pre-monsoon Peninsular India trough showed signs of activation last week. There was a twist in the weather conditions for a brief period. However, the city remained waterless, till date. Both, Bengaluru rural and urban have a rainfall deficiency of 99%. Many other pockets surrounding the plateau city have a similar fate and are unlikely to be better, anytime soon.

The anticyclone on either side of the Peninsular coastline has pushed the seasonal trough, far to the west of its normal position. Whatever weather activity, it is confined to the state of Kerala, Coastal Karnataka, North Karnataka and Madhya Maharashtra. Bengaluru, Mysuru, Mandya, Hassan, Chamrajnagar and Tumkur are fighting the odds of weather.

The long absence of rains have led to the accumulation of heat and mercury rising above the average norms. Heat is going to catch up further and the temperature may reach in high 30’s, around the weekend. The month of April is considered a shade hotter than May. Right now, the city is going through the peak heat and is likely to ease out significantly after the first week of May.
