Sudden downpour

HYDERABAD: Sudden rain lashed the city on Monday morning bringing much needed respite to people from the sweltering heat. Though the sudden downpour lasted only for about an hour, waterlogged roads threw life out of gear in the city.

Meanwhile, the skies remained cloudy throughout the day forcing average temperatures to drop a couple of degrees. Hyderabad city recorded only 1.3 mm rainfall. The MET centre has, however, issued hailstorm warnings for isolated places over Telangana on Tuesday.

A maximum of 3 cm rainfall recorded from Kammarpalle in Nizamabad district was the highest in the state. Sarangapur in Karimnagar and Sirpur in Adilabad recorded 2 cm each. Places like Metpalle in Karimnagar, Asifabad and Khanapur in Adilabad district also recorded 1 cm rainfall each.

According to Hyderabad Meteorological Centre, the maximum temperatures fell at one or two places over the state. The weather conditions are expected to prevail for another five days.

“The rains on Monday could be due to moist southerly winds blowing from Bay of Bengal and also due to land heating. The maximum temperatures have been around 40 degrees at many places causing instability in the atmosphere and thus leading to development of cumulonimbus clouds,” said M Narasimha Rao, assistant meteorologist, IMD centre, Begumpet.

A maximum of 33.5 degrees and a minimum of 24.2 degrees was recorded in the city on Monday.
