Hyderabad: The IMD had predicted that the southwest monsoons would arrive in Telangana on 10 June. Except for parts of north and east Telangana, several other districts in the state are still waiting for the monsoon showers.

The IMD said that the southwest monsoon has further advanced into some more parts of Telangana and Rayalseema on Monday.

Weather experts say the other parts of the state will witness the onset of monsoon in the next 2-3 days. SkyMet Weather's Mahesh Palawat said monsoon will hit most parts of Telangana in the next 48 hours. He said many areas like north Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh have also seen a delay in monsoon but will witness the first showers in the next two days.

According to the Telangana State Development Planning Society's (TSDPS) rainfall forecast for the next three days, southwest monsoons are likely to hit all the remaining parts of the state, i.e., central and south Telangana, in the next 72 hours.




T. Balaji, popularly known as Telangana Weatherman, tweeted, "During June 14-17 there will be widespread monsoon heavy rains in Telangana. Mainly North, Central TS district will get very good rains. Hyderabad is likely to witness its first proper monsoon rain during these dates."

Delay in monsoons

Independent weather observer Rajanikanth Poolla said this year, the onset of the monsoon did not have its normal signature. "Low pressure over the north-west Bay of Bengal could have helped in the advancement of monsoon over Telugu states, but that did not happen partly due to cooler than normal sea surface conditions," he explained.

Another weather observer, Mahaboob Khan, better known as Weather Brother, also said that the cold waters in the Bay of Bengal is one of the reasons for the delay in the monsoon. "The Northern Limit of Monsoon (NLM) has crossed Mumbai and has extended only up to Tamil Nadu on the east coast and has not touched Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The cold waters of the Bay of Bengal are one reason for the slow progress of the southwest monsoon," said Mahaboob.



The Northern Limit of Monsoon is the northernmost boundary over India up to which monsoons have advanced on any given day.

Mahaboob also added that in the last two-three days, the temperature over the Bay of Bengal has been rising, and hence in another one week, a low-pressure area is very likely to form. "We had a very bad pre-monsoon season (starting from April) this year," he added.

He also said that MJO or Madden-Julian Oscillation, an atmospheric phenomenon, is currently in an unfavorable phase which is also causing delayed progress in monsoon globally.

Parts of TS receive showers

Meanwhile, north and east Telangana districts have been receiving rains for the last two days. According to the Telangana State Development Planning Society, Rajampet in Kamareddy recorded the state's highest rainfall of 97.3 mm in the last 24 hours. Besides, Nirmal, Karimnagar, Pedappalli, Mancherial, Rajanna Sircilla, and Komaram Bheem Asifabad also received rains. Hyderabad did not receive any rainfall on Sunday.
