Hyderabad: Light to moderate rains are expected in few north and central districts of Telangana. Meanwhile, the minimum temperature is expected to drop to 14 degrees Celsius in some districts, according to the latest forecast from weather observatory body Telangana State Development Planning Society (TSDPS).

The forecast says, “With the interaction of moist easterly winds from Bay of Bengal and cold and dry westerly winds from North India, light to moderate rain is expected at a few places over north and central districts of the state.”

Rainfall of up to 15mm will be seen in isolated areas of Hyderabad on Sunday. Saturday’s sudden rainfall has come as a relief, said experts. Heavy rainfall is expected in Nalgonda district with rainfall of up to 82mm. Light to moderate rainfall will continue for two more days and will probably end by Tuesday.

Mr. Mahesh Palawat of Skymet said “It’s raining in Telangana, because the turf is extending from Odisha to interior Karnataka and Telangana. Moreover, there is also anti-cyclone in Bay of Bengal, which has led to formation of moisture over Telangana, where because of increase in humidity it is raining.”

He added that coastal Andhra Pradesh and some parts of Vidarbha will also experience light to moderate rainfall.

“According to our forecast deep patches of clouds are seen over Hyderabad and Nizamabad. As the confluence zone, which was present in Odisha and Madhya Pradesh has shifted towards south, the prospects of rainfall in central districts will reduce. The confluence zone in expected to move deeper down south in the coming weeks,” he added.

In Telangana, the minimum temperature in the last 24 hours fell to 16.2 degrees Celsius in Mongdampalle of Sangareddy district, while maximum temperature of 35.5 degrees Celsius was recorded at Yacharam in Nalgonda district.
