HYDERABAD: Hyderabadis heaved a sigh of relief from the heatwave conditions on Tuesday when  some parts of the city and several parts of Telangana witnessed moderate showers.

According to the met department, the showers would continue at isolated places in the state for the next five days or so and the temperature would go down by a couple of degrees.

“On Tuesday because of the a hailstorm, the temperature has gone down by a few degrees Celsius. Over the next few days, we can expect some marginal relief from extremely hot weather conditions. Thunderstorm, accompanied by squall/hail, is likely at a few places in Telangana in the next 48 hours,” said Y K Reddy, in-charge of Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Hyderabad Centre.

“At least, 25 per cent places in the state will have rains and the remaining places will have heatwave-like conditions. Most probably, heatwave conditions will prevail in some parts of Adilabad, Nizamabad, Karimnagar and Khammam,” he added.

However, days will continue to be sunny as the activity will take place in late afternoons, making evenings and nights fairly comfortable. Like most parts of the country, Hyderabad is too bearing the brunt of heatwave conditions. On Friday, the city recorded  42 C, which was around four degrees above the season’s average. Also, the hot and humid weather will prevail in the city for the next 48 hours but with less intensity.

This year, Hyderabad has witnessed maximum temperatures rising above 39 C throughout April.
