Since the beginning of October, Coastal Karnataka has been receiving on and off rains, which is why the average rains of Coastal Karnataka are near normal. Whereas, North Interior Karnataka region is largely rain deficient by 91%. Along with this, South Interior Karnataka is also deficient by 55%.

The reason for these subdued rains can be attributed to the formation of Cyclone Titli over Bay of Bengal. Due to which, the flow of humid winds from Bay of Bengal remained obstructed over South Peninsula including Karnataka.

However, during the last 24 hours, many coastal and southern stations of the state recorded scattered light to moderate rainfall activity. In fact, the capital city, Bengaluru also received light rain after remaining dry for almost five days.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Mandya recorded 35 mm of rain, followed by Mysore 9 mm, Shirali 8 mm, Bengaluru 3.8 mm, Madikeri 3 mm and Honavar 1 mm.

Now a cyclonic circulation has formed over Southeast Arabian Sea and another cyclonic circulation lies over Interior Tamil Nadu. Due to the influence of these weather systems, we expect rains to increase over South Interior Karnataka.

Bengaluru may also receive few moderate spells during the next two to three days.

Coastal Karnataka is expected to receive scattered light to moderate rains. However, rains will remain subdued over North Interior Karnataka. But marginal increase in rains over this region will be seen around after 24 hours.

Moderate spell of rain and thundershower activity is likely over Bagalkot, Bangalore, Bangalore Rural, Belgaum, Bellary, Bijapur, Chamarajanagar, Chikkaballapura, Chikmagalur, Chitradurga, Dakshina Kannada, Devanagari, Dharwad, Gadag, Hassan, Haveri, Kodagu, Koppal, Mandya, Mysore, Raichur, Ramanagara, Shimoga, Tumkur, Udupi and Uttara Kannada the districts of Karnataka during next 24 hours.
