Red alert sounded in coastal Karnataka as the state gears up for heavy rains

October 23, 2019 9:44 AM |

Rain in Karnataka

Northeast Monsoon is turning out quite a bonanza for the state of Karnataka with the state receiving heavy rains since last many days.

During the last 24 hours moderate to heavy rains have lashed Karnataka. Looking at the rainfall figures for last 21 hours, Belgaum received 15 mm rains, Gadag 41 mm, Honnavar 23 mm, Chitradurg 16 mm, Bengaluru 13 mm while Mangalore recorded some light rainfall.

These rains can be traced down to the presence of a Well Marked Low Pressure Area over East-central Arabian Sea. The system will keep persisting over this area while moving North-northeastwards towards Karnataka coast leading to increase in rain activities.

We expect rain activities to intensify over Karnataka by today evening. These rains may continue over the state until October 25. During this time, ‘red alert’ situation is expected to emerge in coastal areas of Karnataka. However North Interior Karnataka may also experience moderate to heavy rains. Light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells are likely over South Interior Karnataka. Bengaluru may also receive moderate showers.

After October 25, the Well Marked Low Pressure Area will start moving towards Northwest and may intensify further. However, its impact will be less over the Indian coast. Thus, Karnataka will see decreased rain activities after October 25. Weather will start improving however light to moderate rains will continue over some parts of Karnataka.
