Rain in Andhra Pradesh

As had been forecast by Skymet, during the last 24 hours, moderate to heavy rains occurred over South coastal Andhra Pradesh and Southern districts of Rayalaseema.

The city of Nellore has received a whopping 104 mm of rain during the past 24 hours. This is the fourth time in history, that Nellore has crossed 100 mm rain mark in the last 10 years. In fact, this is the highest rainfall the city has received in a span of 24 hours after the year 2015.

Not just Nellore, Kavali also recorded 27 mm rain, Ongole 18 mm, Tirupati 17 mm and Arogyavaram received 14 mm rains.

Now, we expect these on and off rains to continue over South coastal Andhra Pradesh and adjoining parts of Rayalaseema. However, the rain intensity may vary today. These on and off rains are expected to continue for at least the next few days.

Although there are very few chances of Northeast Monsoon to become vigorous but Normal Monsoon conditions will continue. However, North coastal Andhra Pradesh will not see any significant rainfall activity as the weather is expected to remain dry over there.

Looking back at the performance of Northeast Monsoon over Andhra Pradesh this year, most parts of the coastal Andhra Pradesh particularly the southern districts as well as Rayalaseema received moderate to heavy showers until October 31. Not to wonder, that the month of October ended with a large surplus for Andhra Pradesh.

However, since the beginning of November, weather has gone almost dry over the state, leading to a significant decrease in rain surplus figures.

As of November 14, coastal Andhra Pradesh has become rain deficient by 2% whereas the rainfall deficiency for Rayalaseema has gradually come down and has received ‘normal’ rains till now.

In the month of November, successive Cyclones formed over Arabian Sea as well as Bay of Bengal leading to weak Northeast Monsoon conditions. Now, however the Northeast Monsoon has once again revived as moderate northeasterly winds from Bay of Bengal have commenced.
