After the slight increase in temperature that touched 30 degree Celsius, the city received heavy rain on Monday night.

According to Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) officials in Bangalore, temperatures in the city rose on Saturday and Sunday which resulted in the formation of moisture in the air that precipitated as rain. The city received 6.6 mm rainfall on Monday night.

In the next two days, the weather in the city is expected to generally remain cloudy with one or two spells of rain or thundershowers in some areas. The maximum and minimum temperatures would be around 29 and 20 degree Celsius respectively, according to IMD Bangalore Centre director B Puttanna.

The North East Monsoon is likely to hit the state a little early by October 10, he said. “Normally it starts from October 20. This October, the city is likely to receive 176 mm of rainfall, which would be the second highest rainfall in a month this year,” he said. In September, the city had received 356.2 mm of rainfall, the highest in a month in the last 25 years.
