Bengaluru: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast rain, thunder, and lightning for most parts of south interior Karnataka for the next two days due to local convection. The emergence of a low-pressure area over the south Arabian Sea is expected to bring rain to parts of Karnataka from May 6.
The temperature in the city was 34 degrees Celsius and 34.1 degrees Celsius at HAL airport on the evening of Tuesday May 3. No rainfall was reported till 5.30 pm on Tuesday and till 8.30 pm. Rainfall was recorded at 6mm at the city observatory on Palace Road.
IMD experts predict that a cyclonic circulation will form over the south Andaman Sea and its neighbouring areas around May 4 and will develop into a low-pressure area by May 6 Due to heavy rainfall across most of Karnataka.
Instead of just seasonal outlooks, the IMD has begun to release sub-division wise monthly outlooks. This has also begun as a result of the extreme heat in most places of India. Maximum and lowest temperatures, as well as rainfall, are all included in the forecast.
