Hyderabad: Thunderstorm accompanied with gusty winds is likely to occur in isolated parts of Telangana, says the weather warning issued by the Indian Meteorological Centre, Hyderabad. The warning has been issued for the next five days, till June 12. Meanwhile, the weather forecast for the state mentioned that light rains and thunder showers can be expected in the afternoons.
Weather experts say that the current weather developments in the state can be associated with pre-monsoon condition. Mahesh Palawat, head of Skymet, a private weather forecasting body, said that very strong weather conditions are not expected in the state. “There is no sign of a significant weather system that can cause great impact till now. So, intense weather activity is not possible. Humid winds from the Bay of Bengal are feeding moisture into the area, which is why we are experiencing high relative humidity,” he said.
Meanwhile, the onset of southwest monsoon in Telangana is expected by June 15, Palawat said. “Conditions favourable to monsoon are expected to occur from June 10 to June 12 in Telangana, following which the onset of monsoon is likely,” he said.
“Southwest monsoon (SWM) has set in over south interior Karnataka, more parts of North Tamil Nadu as of June 7. Due to this system formation, the lower-level westerlies will be pulled from Arabian sea which will strengthen in the coming days, hence, an offshore trough would form along West Coast of India. This system would intensify and converge along north coastal Andhra and Odisha also. Due to this factor, SWM onset will progress along the west and east coasts of India. By June 11, SWM onset is likely to reach coastal Maharashtra, north interior Karnataka, Telangana and over parts of Odisha,” said Parthan, a weather enthusiast.
Meanwhile, north coastal Andhra Pradesh is likely to receive heavy rainfall from June 10. A low pressure area would form over East Central Bay of Bengal by June 8, which is likely to intensify into a depression over North Bay by June 10 and move towards North Coastal Andhra Pradesh and Odisha, said weather experts.
