Hyderabad: The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), on 16 June, issued a heavy rainfall warning for Telangana. It predicted heavy rain in isolated places in districts like Nizamabad, Jagitial, Peddappalle, Karimnagar, Jayashankar Bhapalpalle, Mulugu, Bhadradri Kothagudem, Khammam, Adilabad, Komaram Bheem Asifabad, Nagarkurnool, and Mancherial.
Light to moderate rains or thundershowers are likely to occur in few places in the state for the next five days, the IMD forecast said. It said the current weather conditions are due to the presence of south-west monsoon over Telangana. On 15 June, Jayashankar Bhupalpally and Nirmal districts had received the maximum rainfall.
Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon has further advanced into parts of west and east Madhya Pradesh and east Uttar Pradesh, said Dr. K. Naga Ratna, the director in-charge of IMD Hyderabad.
The weather inference for the state also detected the presence of a cyclonic circulation over east Vidarbha in Maharashtra and neighbouring areas. “A low-pressure area is likely to form over north Bay of Bengal and its neighbourhood around 19 June,” the weather inference stated.
