Most of the states in South Peninsula have received good rains till now and at present, this is the only subdivision in the country to be rain surplus by 2%.
However, Rayalaseema, North Interior Karnataka and Lakshadweep are the three meteorological divisions of the region which are still rain deficient.
During the last 24 hours, Rayalaseema received good rains, with Kadapa recording 88 mm of rain, followed by Anantapur 28.4 mm and Kurnool 14.7 mm.
In fact, parts of North Interior Karnataka also received moderate to heavy showers over few places. In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Tuesday, Hassan recorded 53.8 mm of rain, followed by Kalburgi 45.8 mm, Mandya 19.6 mm, Madikeri 9.2 mm, Vijayapur 8 mm and Mysuru 1 mm.
These rains can be attributed to the north-south trough is extending from North Interior Karnataka to South Tamil Nadu. Now, with this trough to persist for some more time, we expect scattered rains to occur over Tamil Nadu, Rayalaseema and South Interior Karnataka.
Scattered light to moderate rains are also possible over Telangana.
Thus, we can see that after a long dry spell, rainfall has once again revived over South Peninsula. We expect rains to increase over Coastal Andhra Pradesh as well as Telangana by next week, around September 16.
During that time, a cyclonic circulation is likely to form over west-central Bay of Bengal and will start moving in westwards across Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Thus, on and off rains will continue over parts of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Rayalaseema, Tamil Nadu and South Interior Karnataka during the next eight to ten days.
However, North Interior Karnataka, Coastal Karnataka and Kerala will witness subdued Monsoon conditions and weather would be almost dry.
