After a brief break, vigorous Monsoon conditions are once again back over Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. All thanks to the well-marked low pressure area over Northwest Bay of Bengal and adjoining Odisha and West Bengal.
The system had given heavy to very heavy Monsoon rains over parts of both the states, with few places recording extremely heavy rains as well. In span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Sunday, Kammam recorded 207 mm of rain, followed by Bhadrachalam 147 mm, Nandigama 100 mm, Visakhapatnam 86 mm, Vijayawada 85 mm, and Nizamabad 76 mm.
The state capital Telnagana, Hyderabad too recorded rains to the tune of 20 mm in the similar time span.
According to Skymet Weather, the low pressure area is likely to get more marked and move inland in west-northwest direction. As reiterated before, most of the rain bearing clouds are seen south of the system. In fact, the intense rain activity is always seen far away from the centre of the system.
With this, intense clouds are presently seen over Telangana, coastal Andhra Pradesh, South Chhattisgarh, and parts of Vidarbha region of Maharashtra. Weather models are showing heavy to very heavy rainfall to continue over both the neighbouring states for the next 24 hours as well.
This is the second consecutive Monsoon system to affect the region, that too in quick succession. In fact, the earlier system which was seen as a depression had given good rainfall over both the states, which had even wiped off the rainfall deficiency.
As on August 19, Coastal Andhra Pradesh is rain surplus by 17%, while Telangana is witnessing excess rains by 10%.
However, Rayalaseema continued to be highly rain deficient by 38%. In fact, the region would still remain beyond the reach of this low pressure area and thus, we do not even see much of improvement.
As per the weathermen, while Telangana and Coastal Andhra Pradesh would see increase in rain surplus, Rayalaseema would continue to battle rainfall deficiency.
