HYDERABAD:Brace up yourself with umbrellas and some cover over your head before you step out on Monday and Tuesday as the city is likely to witness heavy rains and even a hailstorm in the coming 48 hours. Weathermen caution that the moist winds, which are passing through the coast of Odisha from the Bay of Bengal, can cause heavy rainfall throughout the state. Nizamabad was lashed with a 7 cm rainfall on Sunday itself and more rains are likely to hit the state in the next two days.

The slight spell of rainfall, which began across the Telangana state on Saturday late night, is slowly transforming into a heavy rainfall and is likely to lash the entire across the state. On Sunday, there was a slight rainfall in several parts of the state, especially the northern parts   witnessed slightly heavy rains.

Some parts of Nizamabad and Adilabad districts saw the rainfall of 7 cm which is considered closer to heavy rainfall.

India Meteorological Department (IMD) officials said rains may continue for two more days and some of the districts might see heavy rains as the moist winds have already crossed the coast of Odisha from the Bay of Bengal.  The Meteorological Center, Hyderabad has already issued ‘hailstone warning’ in eight districts of the state.
