Visakhapatnam: Parts of Andhra Pradesh are likely to see a drop in temperature following the end of the southwest monsoon. Chintapalle in ASR recorded a minimum temperature of 14.4 degree Celsius on Tuesday. Mercury dipped to below 14 degree Celsius in other parts of the district. The low temperature on Tuesday is an indication of the chilly weather ahead over tribal pockets.

It may be recalled that Lammasingi or Lambasingi and Tajangi villages under Chintapalle Mandal and Minumuluru under Paderu Mandl in the ASR district have emerged as the coldest places in the state with the mercury hovering between 6 and 8 degrees Celsius during the peak winter season.

IMD-Amaravati said that the southwest monsoon almost withdrew from most parts of the state. It also predicted that parts of the state may receive rainfall till December.

Dr. Sagili Karunasagar, a Scientist at IMD-Amaravati said the winter season will make its presence felt from the second week of November.

"We are expecting that the minimum temperatures during the winter season in most parts of the state will be below normal. There will be few chances of extremely chilly weather or hot days during the winter season. The minimum temperatures are usually recorded during the night or early morning. We will get a clear picture in a couple of days to predict the upcoming winter season," he added.

Based on the recorded temperature at Chintapalle, the locals guess the temperature of surrounding areas Lammasingi and Tajangi by deducting 1 to 2 degree Celsius from the temperature at RARS.

The maximum day temperatures have been hovering between 30 and 34 degree Celsius in the state.
