Hyderabad: Few hours of rain turned Hyderabad into a big pool on Wednesday.

Life was thrown out of gear after the city's western portion was inundated.

Balanagar received the highest 104mm of rainfall in the last 24 hours, followed by Alwal and Thirumalagiri, receiving 95 and 94mm of rain

Rains lashed the city at 6 pm. Over the next four hours, many areas experienced flooded roads and traffic jams. There was a flood-like condition in most of northern Hyderabad. Borabanda's streets looked like rivers. Gushing waters washed away motorbikes.

There was a heavy downpour and water logging in Quthbullapur, Alwal, Tirumalagiri, Balanagar, Kukatpally, Miyapur, Moosapet, and Sanathnagar.

Apart from the city, various districts of Telangana have also witnessed heavy rainfall. Siddipet received around 160 mm followed by sangareddy 135 mm.

Hyderabad outskirts, Medchal, and Rangareddy also have faced the wrath of the thunderstorms.

"Cyclonic circulation was over Tamil Nadu. It extends to Bihar, south Bihar, and across Rayalaseema, Telangana, and Chhattisgarh. In between the bay of Bengal, there was moisture over that area. With the influence of troughs, rain activities were intense, particularly over Hyderabad and adjoining areas." said Mahesh Palawat, Vice president of Meteorology and Climate Change at Skymetweather.

He said the trough is expected to persist for another 2-3 days so that moderate-intensity rain activities will continue in many parts of Telangana for the next week.

"There will be a gradual decrease after 2-3 days. However, the weather will not be completely dry. Moderate showers with isolated intensive spells cannot be ruled out for the next 2-3 days," he said

According to the TSDPS, the GHMC region will have light to moderate rain at a few locations during the following two days, followed by light to moderate rain at many places on day 3.

Maximum temperatures will range between 30 and 32 degree Celsius, while minimum temperatures will hover from 20 to 22 degree Celsius.
