Hyderabad rains break century old record, highest rain in December ever

December 14, 2018 6:17 PM |

Weather in HyderabadThe prolonged dry spell in Hyderabad came to an end on Thursday and that too with a bang. The city not only recorded heavy rains but also broke century-old record.

The state capital recorded 47 mm of rain in span of 24 hours till 8:30 am on Friday. This has been highest rainfall recorded in span of 24 hours during the month of December since December 1, 2018 wherein the city had recorded 44.5 mm of rain.

The city does not record much rains during this time of the year. In fact, the normal average rainfall for the months also stands at 4.9 mm.

These unexpected rains were the result of a trough that was running from Chhattisgarh to South Interior Karnataka across Telangana. However, the trough has now weakened, which would now lead to dry weather conditions over the city. We expect sky to remain partly cloudy, but chances of rain are very less.

This is not all as this break would be a brief one. There is a deep depression brewing in Bay of Bengal, which is likely to intensify into a cyclonic storm by tonight, named as Phethai. It might further intensify into a severe cyclonic storm as well.

The system would be moving in north-northwest direction towards the Andhra Pradesh Coast. As a result, we expect scattered rains to return over Hyderabad by December 16. These on and off showers would continue till December 17.

Subsequently, weather would completely go dry as the probable cyclone after making landfall would re-curve in northeast direction towards Odisha and West Bengal.
