The city of Bengaluru observes rains during the Southwest Monsoon season as well during the initial phase of the Northeast Monsoon season. The month of October sees good rains while rains reduce to some extent during November. Thereafter, both December and January with the monthly rainfall of 15.7 mm and 1.9 mm are the comparatively drier months.
The number of rainy days also reduce from eight in October to four in November and a mere one in the month of December. This year, the first half of October was quite rainy for Bengaluru. In fact, the city did witness rains the entire time with a few days seeing heavy rainfall activity. Not only this, there were about four days, namely October 2, 6, 8, and 13, when Bengaluru recorded rains close to or above the 50-mm mark.
Due to these heavy rains, Bengaluru was able to surpass its monthly mean for October quite easily. Coming to November, rains were completely on the backseat with the city recording rainfall on November 8 only. As far as December is concerned, rains were witnessed on the first and second day in view of Cyclone Ockhi.
However, now, no significant system is affecting the weather over Bengaluru which is why dry weather conditions are expected for at least a week. The weather conditions are expected to remain pleasant with the maximums ranging between 27 and 28 degrees with the minimums hovering around 17 and 18 degrees.
Along with pleasant weather, mornings may see moderate to dense fog which is expected to clear up very soon. A slight nip in the air may also be observed over the city of Bengaluru during the early morning and late night hours.
