HYDERABAD: The long wait of Telangana, which has been reeling under severe drought for the last two years, may finally end in two days.
With the Southwest monsoon advancing into Rayalaseema, Bay of Bengal and most parts of coastal Andhra Pradesh, meteorologists are expecting favourable conditions for the onset of monsoon in Telangana.
“The Southwest monsoon has advanced into remaining parts of Rayalaseema and most parts of coastal AP. A cyclonic circulation is witnessed in the Bay of Bengal followed by low pressure in inland areas of AP. This will lead to further advancement of southwest monsoon into remaining parts of AP and entire Telangana as conditions are favourable,” said YK Reddy, director of Meteorological Centre, Hyderabad.
The prediction of the Met department about the arrival of monsoon in Telangana comes as music to the ears of Telangana farmers who are eagerly waiting for rains.
Though most parts of Telangana including Hyderabad witnessed heavy rains coupled with thunderstorms and dust storms from the latter half of May this year, delay in the onset of monsoon has left not just farmers but even general public disappointed.
According to Met department, heavy rains are likely to occur at isolated places in the districts of Adilabad, Nizamabad, Karimnagar and Warangal, from Monday onwards. Hyderabad will have cloudy sky with the possibility of rain, thunderstorm or duststorm over the next three days.
Meanwhile, there was no change in maximum temperatures in state on Friday. They were appreciably above normal at most places.
The highest maximum temperature of 41 degree Celsius was recorded at Ramagundam.
