The City, which was thristing for rains, on Saturday midnight, received very heavy rainfall, bringing down the temperature for a few hours. The City recorded 33.5 mm rainfall (between 1.30 am and 2.30 am), the highest recorded for the said period in the last hundred years, according to weather experts.

The rainfall was accompanied by heavy thunderstorm, making it a “unique event.” Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre Director V S Prakash, said high intensity rains of 104 mm/hour was recorded between 1.45 am and 2 am on Saturday. “This is very unique for the said period -- April 5 midnight to April 6 early morning,” he observed.

In the last century, Mysore, however, received its highest pre-monsoon showers on April 4, 1973 (96.2 mm); followed by 42.6 mm on April 5, 2002; 39 mm on April 2, 2003; and 36.9 mm on April 1, 2004.

Saturday’s midnight rainfall was however restricted to Naganahalli (26.5 mm), Jayapura (12 mm) and Mysore City. Varuna and Ilavala have recorded no rainfall. Pre-monsoon showers are expected all through April and May. “Given the trend, South West monsoon will be expected on time,” Prakash added.

Indian Meterological Department, Bangalore, Director-in-Charge B Puttanna said South Eastern part of State was experiencing rainfall. He said thunderstorms have been forecast for the next couple of days, which will occur after 5.30 pm. Rainfall has been occurring in isolated parts of Mysore district during the past week.

The temperature dip due to rainfall at night was temporary, as summer heat overshadowed the effect of rains by noon, he added.
