Andhras Kashmir: Temperature drops to 10 degree C in tropical Rayalaseema

Visakhapatnam: Minimum temperatures plummeted to below 10 degree Celsius in many parts of the Rayalaseema region on Tuesday morning. It is very rare to see Rayalaseema, known for high temperatures and hot weather conditions, recording 7 to 9 degree Celsius.

According to the AP State Development Planning Society (APDSPS), the temperature plummeted to 7.6° Celsius at Agali in Sri Sathya Sai district. Madakasira in Sri Sathya Sai district recorded 8.1° Celsius, and Beluguppa in Anantapur district recorded 8.2 ° Celsius on Tuesday morning.

Chintapalle in the ASR district recorded 3 degree Celsius on Tuesday. This is the season's third-lowest minimum temperature in the state. It may be recalled that Chintapalle recorded 1.5°C on Sunday morning and 2 degrees Celsius on Monday morning.

There was no let-up in cool and foggy weather conditions in many parts of Andhra Pradesh. The minimum temperature in many parts of the state particularly the Rayalaseema region and ASR district settled below normal limits.

Dr. Sagili Karunasagar, Scientist of IMD, Amaravati, said the drop in the temperature in many parts of the state, particularly in the Rayalaseema region was due to northwesterly dry and cold wind at lower levels.

"There would be no relief from the chill till January 12. There will be no large change in the minimum temperature over the next two to three days. People may witness cold wave conditions in the coming days and then the temperature gradually rise by 2-4 degrees Celsius," he added.

The dense fog reduced visibility to just 50 meters on Monday, hitting road traffic movement in many parts of the ASR district. With the fog covered for hours and poor visibility led to delays in private and public transport in Paderu and other parts of the ASR district, said Ch Suresh, a resident of Paderu.
