With Bengaluru and the entire Karnataka facing water shortage and almost a drought-like situation, the weatherman forecast may bring some respite. Bengalureans who love to soak in the light evening showers may experience them in the upcoming few days. The forecast by weatherman suggests evening rains for the next 10 days that may continue till the end of this month.
Rains And Thunderstorms Predicted From Noon To Midnight
According to the forecast in the next seven days, there is a 90% chance of rains and thunder in Bengaluru from noon to midnight. It will be a welcome change for the city as there has been almost no rain in Bengaluru urban for the last few days. However, rural Bengaluru has been receiving light showers. From June 1 to July 15 in the span of one and a half months, Bengaluru received only 72 mm rainfall as against the normal 110 mm recording a rain deficit of 35%.
Usually, the city experiences a drop in temperature during this period. However, yesterday the maximum and minimum temperatures were around 2°C more than normal for this particular period. However, with the probability of cloudy skies, and light rains, the temperatures are expected to come down to some extent in the upcoming few days.
Increased Rainfall In Karanataka Predicted
The state of Karnataka which has been fighting drought situation for some time now will witness increased rainfall all through the week. The forecasts suggest that the onshore winds will bring moist air from the Arabian Sea leading to vigorous thundershower. Southern India’s inland areas are also expected to experience increased rainfall from Wednesday onwards due to moisture in winds caused by the cyclonic circulation over the Bay of Bengal.
The India Meteorological Department (IMD) report says that a weak off-shore trough has developed near the coast of Karnataka. This instability due to the relatively low-pressure area is likely to bring widespread rainfall accompanied by heavy to very heavy falls across the coastal areas of Karnataka in the upcoming 5 days.
