HYDERABAD: Thundershowers struck various parts of Hyderabad and the surrounding districts of Medchal and Rangareddy on Tuesday.
The thundershowers were a result of a combination of high temperatures over the past few days of around 40 degree Celsius and presence of moisture in the air due to a trough that exists from Vidarbha in Maharashtra to southern Tamil Nadu, an official of the India Meteorological Department(IMD) said.

This combination of high temperatures and enough presence of moisture causes formation of cumulonimbus clouds that cause sudden rain and high speed winds over an area of 6-8 kilometres. Such process is common till the occurrence of monsoon, said an IMD official.
While the sudden downpours brought temporary relief from heat, it also resulted in bringing traffic to a standstill at a few places. At some places where the intensity of rain and winds was high people experienced power cuts as well.

However, there will be no long lasting relief due to these sudden downpours. The IMD said on Tuesday that maximum temperatures will continue to be above normal by 2-3 degree Celsius at a few places over Telangana on Wednesday. In Hyderabad the maximum temperature was recorded at 39.5 degree Celsius. The maximum was recorded at 42 degree Celsius at Adilabad.
