HYDERABAD: Rain or thundershowers may occur in parts of the state and the sky will remain cloudy. But, going by the met officials, there seems no scope for any drop in the minimum temperature despite forecast of rainfall.

However, the Hyderabad Met Centre has predicted ‘Hud Hud’ cyclone to hit North Andhra Pradesh and Odisha coast after Oct 8.

The system has concentrated into a depression and lay about 250 km east of Port Blair. It would move in a West or North-westerly direction and intensify into a deep depression within the next 24 hours and can further intensify into a cyclonic storm thereafter, said a release from the Met centre.

Meanwhile, rain occurred at a few places over Rayalaseema and at isolated places over Telangana and Coastal Andhra Pradesh. ‘’Due to upper air cyclonic circulations over west-central Bay of Bengal of coastal AP, there has been some rain and thundershower activities,” said Narasimha Rao, assistant meteorologist, Hyderabad Met Centre, adding, ‘’Since both the systems are active at the moment, we cannot expect any fall in temperature.’’

Light to moderate rain or thundershowers will occur at a few places over Rayalaseema on Wednesday.  Light to moderate rain or thundershowers may occur at isolated places over Coastal AP and Telangana.

Hud Hud will be the first cyclonic storm in the year’s cyclonic season between October and December. Hud Hud also happens to be originated from around the same region where cyclone Phailin had originated last year. “Hud Hud will certainly intensify into a severe cyclone due to the distance it would cover before hitting the coast. Usually, in October, the severity will be more,” added Rao.

On Monday, the maximum temperature appreciably dropped at one or two places over Telangana, Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema. The highest maximum temperature of 37 degree celsius was recorded at Nellore,Rentachintala , Hanamakonda and Nizamabad.
