Hyderabad: Hyderabad saw sudden showers on the evening of 1 March as the city experienced an average rainfall of 16 mm. The rains may continue in some parts of the city tomorrow, predicted the weather department. Apart from Hyderabad, Sangareddy, Rangareddy, and Medchal-Malkajgiri districts of Telangana also experienced rains, said the Indian metrological department (IMD).

Weather expert Rajanikanth Poolla said, "This is due to low pressure zone over Karnataka that such sudden rains have happened. The cloud density over Hyderabad has already decreased, so probably there will be no rains tomorrow in Hyderabad."

Mahesh Palawat of Skymet Weather said, “The turf has moved from east Madhya Pradesh to Telangana, hence Hyderabad is experiencing rains. Moreover, a confluence zone has developed over Vidarbha and Telangana. Tomorrow, too, we can expect moderate showers over isolated places of Telangana.”

The IMD has also predicted foggy weather for the next two days in Hyderabad. On 26 February, north Telangana experienced light rains. Skymet had, at the time, predicted a possibility of confluence zone formation leading to thundershowers at the beginning of March.

Meanwhile, the IMD in its seasonal forecast said there will be fewer summer showers this season due to warm temperatures in the Pacific Ocean. This would make the summers warmer than usual, said the weather department.
