Updated on August 11: Good rains for Adilabad, Ramagundam, Hyderabad
The west-northwest movement of the successive weather systems developing over west central Bay of Bengal resulted in more rains over the central parts of the country. Due to which, rains over Telangana remained on the lower side, thereby enhancing the rainfall deficiency settling at 11%, as on August 10.
However, for the past two days, the state has been recording some moderate with isolated heavy rains. In the last 24 hours, from 08:30 am on Friday, Hanamkonda recorded 42 mm of rains, Ramagundam 23 mm, Adilabad 12 mm, Mahbubnagar 7 mm, Medak 6 mm, and capital city, Hyderabad recorded 5 mm and of rains.
As per Skymet Weather, a cyclonic circulation is over coastal Andhra Pradesh. Thus, rain activity is expected to continue for the next 24 hours over Telangana and parts of Coastal Andhra Pradesh for 24 hours more.
The southern parts of Telangana would, however, witness reduced rain activity while North Telangana would experience good rains.
Updated on August 10: Hyderabad rains to continue for 24 hours, likely to reduce thereafter
Monsoon rains have not been miraculous over the state of Telangana. Rather the rains have been occasional. The state was more or less dry during the fag end of July and has remained on the drier side during the first few initial days of August as well.
Rains have become an occasional affair for the last three to four days. It was due to the lack of rains that the state of rainfall deficient by 11%. As per Skymet Weather, out of 31 subdivisions, 14 are rainfall deficient. At 9% and 13% respectively, Adilabad and Khammam are the only rain surplus regions. The remaining sub-divisions fall in the normal bracket.
The capital city, Hyderabad is also highly deficient at 38%. Moreover, it was almost a month after that Hyderabad has been able to record some moderate showers. The last time it received a good two-digit figure was on July 12 when the city had recorded 24 mm of rains.
Post this, the rains have been more or less in single digits and far and few. However, on the last day, the city of Nizams finally got to witness 31 mm of rains.
Although successive weather systems had developed over west central Bay of Bengal and moved in a west-northwest direction, their impact was much more over Odisha, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. This weather system was unable to trigger rains over Telangana due to which, rains remained on a lower side, upbringing the rainfall deficiency.
As of now, a cyclonic circulation is persisting over west central Bay of Bengal off Andhra coast and due to this, we expect scattered light to moderate rains to continue over many districts of the state for the next 24 hours.
Thereafter, rains would reduce significantly and for now, we do not expect the formation of any significant weather system off Andhra coast which may give good rains over the state. Hence, in spite of these rains, the rain deficiency would persist.
