A rainy spell, possibly lasting for a week is likely for South Interior Karnataka in general and Bengaluru in particular. Mostly moderate showers and occasionally heavier ones are expected between 16th and 23rd July. Most locations of this subdivision like Mysuru, Mandya, Chamarajanagar, and Hassan are also likely to have monsoon showers of moderate-intensity during this duration.
The capital city of Bengaluru does not rain heavily during the core monsoon months of July and August. These months have a modest total of 113mm and 147mm of rainfall, respectively. In the last 10 years, the city has exceeded its normal rainfall only twice in the month of July and the rest of the occasions fell short by sufficient margin. The lowest rainfall was 59mm recorded in July 2017.
Halfway through, the city has so far recorded 78mm of rainfall between 01-15 July. The peninsular India trough in the interior parts of South Interior Karnataka is likely to persist between 16th and 23rd July. This feature is going to trigger moderate rains over the city and its suburbs. These intermittent spells will lash most parts during evening and night hours. Thick low and medium clouds are going to keep the day conditions also pleasant with maximum and minimum temperatures ranging about 25 and 20 degrees, respectively. Looks like this rainy spell will help the city to reach and even exceed its monthly normal rainfall of 113mm.
