Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have been witnessing pre-Monsoon rain and thundershowers of varying intensity in the wake of several weather systems prevailing near the region. One is the Cyclonic Circulation over eastern parts of Bihar. From this system a trough is seen extending to interior parts of Tamil Nadu across Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and South Interior Karnataka.
Hence, the rain activities, which have occurred over Odisha, Andhra Pradesh, South Interior Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, will continue for coming three to four days. This north-south trough is a semi- permanent feature, which keeps oscillating east and west. Now, this trough is expected to shift its base to east over Andhra Pradesh, therefore intensity of rains might go up in Coastal Andhra Pradesh as well as in Rayalaseema. We also expect intermittent rain and thundershower activities to continue across many parts of Telangana.
These being the pre-Monsoon activities, therefore thunderclouds would start developing towards afternoon and intensity is expected to increase during that time period.
Telangana, so far, has witnessed good rain and thundershower activities. Hyderabad has also received good rains in past 24 hours and recorded around 20.1 mm of rains.
Similar weather activities are expected in pockets of Telangana as well. During pre-Monsoon, rain and thundershowers are witnessed in patches and are not fairly widespread in nature. Thus, now few districts of Telangana might see good rains coupled with intense thundershowers towards afternoon and evening.
Temperatures are expected to remain below normal at many places of Telangana. Andhra Pradesh too has been witnessing intermittent rain and thundershowers from the last few days. On April 18, Anantapur in Andhra Pradesh recorded 33.2 mm of rains and also the minimums dropped and settled at 19.6 degrees, which is six degrees below normal. Similarly, Hyderabad and Hanamkonda in Telangana recorded 20.1 mm and 23 mm of rains respectively in past 24 hours. The minimums over these regions too have fallen by a couple of degrees.
