At present, a Confluence Zone is extending from Odisha to Interior Tamil Nadu across Coastal Andhra Pradesh and parts of Telangana. The South-easterly humid winds from Bay of Bengal are merging with hot and dry winds from Northwest over this area. Due to this merging of opposite winds we expect development of thunderclouds during afternoon and evening hours, leading to convective cloud formation.
This will mean- intense rain and thundershower activities in pockets whereas some areas may receive light to moderate rain and thundershower activities during the next two days i.e. today and tomorrow.
We expect North-coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh to get a few intense thundershower activities. Intensity over Telangana will be milder with light to moderate activities with one or two heavy spells.
By day after tomorrow, the weather activities will subside, as the Confluence Zone will weaken.
Usually, during this time of the year i.e. April and May, weather systems in the form of a Confluence Zone or a trough, extend from eastern parts of the country to South India across the eastern coast. As there is a slight oscillation of trough from east to west, sometimes, the intensity of rains would increase over Telangana and sometimes over Andhra Pradesh.
This time the intense activity is set to take place over Andhra Pradesh whereas Telangana may only receive light rains with one or two spells.
After two days when the activity would have subsided a little, it will again intensify with a short break. This on and off activity is likely to persist over these states for now, as this trough is a semi-permanent feature.
These upcoming good rains and thundershower activities will also keep a check on the rising temperatures.
