Monsoon is quite active over the parts of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana from the last two to three days. Presently, a Cyclonic Circulation is persisting over the west-central Bay of Bengal off Andhra coast. This circulation is very likely to induce a Low-Pressure Area over the same place by today afternoon or evening.
Therefore, moderate to heavy rains are likely to be seen over Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Telangana during the next 24 to 48 hours. Thereafter, the intensity will decrease, and moderate showers will continue between September 20 to 22.
In the past 24 hours, moderate to heavy rains with one or two heavy to very heavy spells were recorded over Coastal Andhra Pradesh as well as over Telangana. In the past 24 hours, Nalgonda recorded hefty rain of 218 mm while Nandigama in Andhra Pradesh saw 87 mm of rain. Bhadrachalam, Ramagundam, Hyderabad, Mandek, Nizamabad, and Adilabad recorded 46 mm, 56 mm, 32 mm, 34 mm, 39 mm and 24 mm of rains, respectively.
Moderate rains were also seen in Anantapur wherein 18 mm of rain were seen, Nandyal saw 23 mm, Kurnool 11 mm, and Arogyavaram recorded 13 mm of rain.
Telangana which is rain deficit by four percent is expected to recover its deficiency in the coming two to three days. Coastal Andhra Pradesh which is already rain surplus by two percent is expected to rise further.
