Sudden downpour in Hyd; IMD predicts light rains till Aug 2nd

Hyderabad: The heavy downpour and thunderstorms that the city witnessed on the afternoon of 29 July are due to the convergence of dry westerly winds and moist easterly winds. This phenomenon is being noted as the monsoon taking a break in south India, observed independent weather expert Rajanikanth Poolla.

The weather break is indeed proving costly for people as it is hot during the day and it pours in the afternoon. Independent weather forecasters are predicting light and moderate showers at night.

The heavy downpour caused water-logging in the city. Garbage, rice bags, plastic bottles, and other materials choked the drains, obstructing the rainwater from flowing freely. Low-lying areas in the city were flooded. School buses were stuck as it became a major challenge to go into the small lanes of residential colonies.

The sudden downpour also caused heavy traffic in the city. Due to water logging, the Hyderabad traffic police have asked people to plan their travel accordingly. The areas of Cyberabad, Madhapur, Banjara Hills, Ameerpet, and Begumpet will see slow and heavy traffic due to the afternoon showers.

The Indian Meteorological Department, in its afternoon weather forecast, predicted light to moderate rains with thundershowers till 2 August. This means people will have to be prepared for heavy rains and waterlogging.
