Rains to increase over Andhra Pradesh, Odisha soon

Both the states of Andhra Pradesh as well as Odisha have been witnessing good Monsoon showers during the last few days. In fact, Monsoon rains have been decent enough for both the coastal states. The regular occurrence of rainfall over these areas can be attributed to the frequent development of weather systems over the Bay of Bengal region.

During the last 24 hours as well, light showers with a few moderate spells have made an appearance over both the aforementioned states. In a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Tuesday, Ongole recorded 10 mm of rain, Dehnakanal 3 mm, Paradip 5.4 mm, Titlagarh 0.8 mm, Machilipatnam 1.4 mm, and Visakhapatnam 0.9 mm.
