North Coastal Andhra Pradesh has received scattered light to moderate rain and thundershower activities during the last 24 to 48 hours. These rains can be attributed to the Confluence Zone, wherein the humid south-easterlies are merging with dry and cold winds from the northwest direction.
According to Skymet, more rains are expected in the north-coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh as the weather system may continue to impact for another 48 hours. The state of Telangana also stands a chance to see isolated showers during this span. Thereafter, the weather is likely to go dry.
Under the influence of humid winds, the minimums have also been settling above normal. For instance, yesterday, Hayathnagar recorded a minimum of 17℃ (above normal by 2 degrees), Kakinada 23℃ (above normal by 2 degrees), Kalingapatnam 23℃ (above normal by 3 degrees), Ongole 22.5℃ (above normal by 2 degrees), Rajinder Nagar 17.5℃ (above normal by 3 degrees) and Visakhapatnam 23℃ (above normal by 2 degrees). And the temperatures are likely to remain as such for the next three to four days.
Barring these two pockets, others in the Southern Peninsula including Rayalaseema, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala may remain almost dry.
