Drizzle Brings

HYDERABAD: Dense clouds and a drizzle graced the city on Tuesday, bringing much needed relief to people in the city who were distressed with high temperatures ranging up to 43 degrees Celsius. The thunderbolt clouds, rains or drizzle would continue for a couple of days more. However, weathermen said, the heatwave conditions would also continue.

Relieved with the shade provided by the clouds, motorists lifted their heads to check how long the shade would last on Tuesday afternoon. A little after dark clouds hovered in the sky, it started  drizzling. While it rained in the Old City, it drizzled in Narayanaguda, Bagh Lingampally and other parts in the afternoon.

Those who protected themselves from the harsh sun and heatwave by wearing caps and wrapping their heads with scarves till Monday had to pull out umbrellas from shelves as the drizzle continued till late Tuesday evening in Begumpet, Uppal and isolated parts of the city.

A decrease of more than two degrees in temperature was recorded in Hyderabad. Hyderabad Meteorological Department staff said that 40.2 degrees was recorded in the city on Tuesday while it was around 43 degrees on Monday.

Though the clouds will persist for one or two more days, there would be no complete respite from heatwave, the weathermen said. They added that Cumulonimbus clouds (Thunderstorm causing clouds) formed in Hyderabad, because of upper air trough from Chhattisgarh to Comorin area (between South Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka). Thunderbolts and thunderstorms were recorded in the city and on the outskirts throughout the day.

Woman Struck by Thunderbolt

A 32-year-old married woman, who was hit by a thunderbolt, died on the spot at Kavaguda in Shamshabad on Tuesday afternoon. The  woman, R Bhargavi, and a girl Sandhya (18) were walking on the road when it rained. They rushed to a nearby tree to take shelter under it when a thunderbolt struck and killed her. The young girl was injured and was being treated at hospital. Weathermen said that the cumulonimbus clouds will persist in the city for one or two days more.
