Hyderabad: The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), on 25 February, said that rains are expected in isolated places of Telangana, thus leading to a rainy end to February.

According to the forecast, the weather is expected to be foggy in Hyderabad till 29 February due to a cyclone circulation near Bihar. As the temperatures have been steadily rising, the rains will bring some relief to some parts of Telangana.

The IMD, in its forecast, said, “A cyclonic circulation lies over south Bihar and its neighbourhood and a trough from this cyclonic circulation to Telangana at a lower tropospheric level is very likely to cause moderate fairly widespread rainfall with isolated thunderstorm, lightning.” Northern parts of the state like Adilabad and Nizamabad will receive light rainfall, including some parts of Vidarbha.

Mahesh Palawat of Skymet Weather said, “Till 26 February the state is likely to see some slight rainfall. More rain is likely on 2 March as a confluence zone is likely to develop over Vidarbha, Telangana, and south of Chhattisgarh. But we have to wait and see as there are six more days to go.”

The weather department said there will be no drop in temperature due to the rains. The rains will affect states like Chhattisgarh and Bihar but have very minimal effect in Telangana. Weather expert S. Parthasarathy said, “Isolated light rain possible in some areas of Telangana tomorrow. This is due to dry or moist air collision.”

On 9 February, sudden rains had brought relief from the rising temperatures and Mercury levels had decreased by two to three degrees Celsius.
