During the pre-Monsoon season, Rayalaseema has witnessed very less rain and the deficiency stands at 49%. While, on the other hand, Coastal Andhra Pradesh is receiving on and off light rains with occasional moderate showers and still the deficiency stands at 33%.
Cyclone Fani has been a significant contributor in giving rains over North Coastal Andhra Pradesh. Thus, Coastal Andhra Pradesh has remained dry and hot, thus ending the pre-Monsoon season in Andhra Pradesh with deficiency.
As per the experts, we do not expect any significant increase in rain activities over Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra Pradesh. However, for next 24 hours, there may be a few good spells of rain over Coastal Andhra Pradesh and scattered activities over Rayalaseema. These activities will be in wake of a trough extending from Bihar to Tamil Nadu. Also, humid winds from the Bay of Bengal across Telangana are also feeding moisture to Andhra Pradesh.
This trough is now expected to move further west and weather of Andhra Pradesh would turn dry. Although, isolated rains due to localised weather conditions cannot be ruled out. These rains won’t be sufficient in nature that would help in reducing deficiency.
Due to less rain activities, heat wave conditions might make a comeback over Coastal Andhra Pradesh and isolated pockets of Rayalaseema in next three to four days. Southwest Monsoon reaches Kerala by June 4 and by June 5 it enters Rayalaseema. While by June 10, it covers the state of Andhra Pradesh. However, this time the Southwest Monsoon’s progress would be sluggish till first half of June courtesy, El Nino.
Thus, onset of Southwest Monsoon might get delayed by at least four to five days. Looks, like the state of Andhra Pradesh might have to wait for few more days to experience good showers.
