Bengaluru: The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has said that the City is likely to get rainfall from Tuesday November 22. “Light rains are expected to continue till November 24 and the sky will remain generally cloudy,” it added.
According to the forecast, the minimum temperature will be around 18-19 degrees Celsius and the highest temperature will be about 25-26 degrees Celsius these days.
The IMD predicted that starting on November 25, the rain will stop and the sky will be partly cloudy.
The recent Low-Pressure system over the Bay of Bengal is responsible for the cloud formation and rain possibilities. In the coming hours, the Low Pressure will become a Depression and proceed towards the coasts of Tamil Nadu and South Andhra, having an effect on several states in south India.
Due to a recent Low-Pressure formation in the southeast Bay of Bengal, light rainfall has been witnessed in many areas of the city throughout the past week.
The past several days have seen cold temperatures in Bengaluru, which were frequently 2-4 notches below the season’s normal. In the previous 24 hours, the lowest temperature recorded was 13.9 degrees, which was four points below average.
In the upcoming days, heavy to very heavy rains are expected across all of south India. According to the most recent information, rain is expected to begin soon in various areas of Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry, Andhra Pradesh, and Odisha due to Sunday’s Low-Pressure development that concentrated into a depression. According to a Regional Meteorological Centre in Chennai, the depression is extremely likely to maintain its intensity and move slowly west-northwestward during the next 48 hours.
“The depression over southwest and adjoining southeast Bay of Bengal moved nearly northwestward with a speed of 6 kmph during the past six hours and lay centred at 600 km east of Karaikal and 630 km southeast of Chennai. It is very likely to maintain its intensity of depression and move slowly west-northwestwards towards north Tamilnadu, Pondicherry, and south Andhra Pradesh coasts during next 48 hours,” the bulletin said.
