VISAKHAPATNAM: Many places in coastal Andhra Pradesh and Rayalaseema received rainfall with thunderstorm, giving respite from heat wave conditions, on Sunday morning.

West Godavari, East Godavari, Prakasam, Visakhapatnam, Kurnool, Chittoor, Kadapa and Anantapur districts received a rainfall up to 3 cm.

There was no major change in the maximum day temperatures in coastal AP and Rayalaseema, with many places recording temperatures below the normal, baring a few places where mercury  levels hovered above the 40 degrees mark.

The highest temperature of 42 degrees Celsius was recorded at Nellore and Bapatla. While there were no severe heat wave conditions, 39 mandals recorded heat wave conditions and 89 mandals faced hot conditions.

As per the daily report of Andhra Pradesh State Development Planning Society (APSDPS), 13 mandals are likely to record heat wave conditions and 191 more may face hot conditions in the next 24 hours.

The upper air cyclonic circulation over the southeast Bay of Bengal and adjoining east central Bay of Bengal now lies over west central Bay of Bengal between 3.1 and 4.5 km above the mean sea level.

“The weather system might induce light to moderate rain and thundershowers at isolated places over the Coastal AP and Rayalaseema in the next 24 hours,” said an India Meteorological Department (IMD) report.
