During the last 24 hours, several districts of Andhra Pradesh and as well as Odisha have been receiving good Monsoon showers. Hence, places such as Kalingapatnam, Koraput, Nellore, Chandbali, Tirupathi, Balasore and Angul have been observing light to moderate rain and thundershower activities. Therefore, the residents of these two states have been experiencing comfortable weather conditions since last few days.
In a span of last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Sunday, Koraput recorded 23 mm of rainfall, Nellore 21.5 mm, Chandbali 20.3 mm, Tirupathi 18 mm, Balasore 8 mm, Cuddappah 7.2 mm, Titlagarh 5 mm, Angul 4.6 mm, Sambalpur 4.2 mm, Bhubneshwar 4 mm, Vijayawada 3.2 mm, Cuttack 2.4 mm, Gopalpur 2.1 mm, Kalingapatnam 1.6 mm, Kurnool 1.4 mm, Vishakapatnam 1 mm.
These weather conditions can be attributed to an eastern end of the axis of Monsoon trough which is seen passing through Kalingapatnam up to North Coastal Andhra Pradesh. Therefore, light to moderate rain with one or two heavy spells may continue to occur over coastal parts of Andhra Pradesh during the next 24 hours. Whereas, several parts of Coastal Odisha will continue to settle with light Monsoon rains.
Moreover, several districts such as Vishakapatnam, Ganjam, Koraput, Gajapati, Srikakulam, Vijayawada and Kalingapatnam will continue to observe a good spell of Monsoon rains for the next coming days.
Further, a cyclonic circulation is likely to develop over South Coastal Odisha and North coastal Andhra Pradesh. Due to which, these on and off light to moderate showers are likely to pick up a pace and the intensity over these regions will also increase significantly from August 23 and 24.
However, light Monsoon rains at several places over northern districts of Odisha cannot be ruled out. As on August 20, the sub-divisional rainfall distribution statistics shows that Odisha is rain deficient region by 4%. Whereas, Andhra Pradesh is rain surplus by 12%.
