Pre-Monsoon activities are being witnessed in many parts of Andhra Pradesh. In the past 24 hours, Coastal Andhra Pradesh witnessed good rain and thundershowers. Scattered rains were a sight in Rayalaseema as well.
According to the rainfall data collected by Skymet, Vijayawada during the last 24 hours from 8.30 am on Thursday received heavy rains of 56 mm, while Tuni recorded 27 mm of rain, Kakinada and Rentachintala recorded 15 mm of rain each. Khamman also recorded 27 mm of rain, Kurnool 7 mm and Narsapur 1 mm of rain.
A Cyclonic Circulation is currently over Gangetic West Bengal and a Trough is extending from this system up to North Coastal Andhra Pradesh. Another trough is extending from East Madhya Pradesh up to South Interior Karnataka across Telangana and Rayalaseema.
In view of these weather systems, we expect short spells of rain and thundershower activities over Coastal Andhra Pradesh during afternoon or evening hours for the next two to three days. The intensity of rain is likely to be moderate in Rayalaseema during the next 24 hours. Thereafter, the intensity would decrease, and rains will become light and scattered.
By June 10, the rainfall activity over entire Andhra Pradesh is forecast to decrease as a Low-Pressure Area would develop over the Southeast and adjoining the Southcentral Arabian Sea. Winds would then concentrate around the weather system leading to rains receding in Andhra Pradesh. Until June 15, the weather activity in terms of rain in Andhra Pradesh would be isolated.
Due to the formation of the Low-Pressure Area in the Arabian Sea, Monsoon would also get delayed. The onset of Southwest Monsoon in Kerala is already delayed by almost a week and is expected any time soon.
