Hyderabad: Scorching hot mornings turned into a partially-cloudy sky in Hyderabad on Thursday due to the southeastern winds.
"This is the pre-monsoon rainfall season. Due to the prevalence of the southeastern wind, partial rains may occur over the next two days in parts of the state," explained the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) in-charge Dr. Shravani.
According to the IMD daily weather report, three districts in the state received scattered rainfall. Kothagudem received the highest rainfall (64.2 mm) followed by Palwancha which received 20.6 mm rains on Thursday. Isolated places in the state also received very light (0.3 to 2.4 mm) to light (2.5 to 15.5 mm) rainfall. Wanaparthy and Vikarabad districts also saw some light showers.
Meanwhile, Medak recorded the highest maximum temperature of 40.2°Celsius and the lowest minimum temperature of 20.3°Celsius. Hyderabad saw a maximum temperature of 37.8°Celsius.
According to IMD, isolated pre-monsoon rains will continue to occur throughout the state until the end of March. "The sudden shift in temperature is due to the rain-bearing clouds that travel from a low-pressure area to a high-pressure area in the noon due to the altering wind directions. It is possible that Hyderabad will not see much rain in the coming days due to low humidity," Dr. Shravani further explained.
