The city of Bengaluru has seen some good rains in the last 24 hours wherein 66 mm of rainfall has been recorded over the capital city of Karnataka. During the first half of October, for the first 14 days, the city of Bengaluru has witnessed 121.5 mm of rainfall.
The month of October is the second rainiest month for Bengaluru with the normal of 186.4 mm. We can expect some more showers coming up for the city in the next few days at least.
A Cyclonic Circulation is off Karnataka Coast and adjoining areas in the Arabian Sea. Another weather system is over Southwest Bay of Bengal off North Tamil Nadu and South Coastal Andhra Pradesh. A trough line is joining these two systems.
Both the systems will move westward, with the Arabian Sea system moving away but the Bay system will move inland. With this, rains will continue over Bengaluru, rainfall being heavier today and tomorrow.
Thereafter also, rains will continue over the city of Bengaluru for at least a few more days. More heavy showers may be seen around October 21 and 22 when another system will form in Bay during that time. These rains may result in Bengaluru surpassing its monthly normal pretty soon.
