Cool weather and rain gave the people of Bangalore the much-needed respite from heat on Monday. Showers began towards the evening and lasted well into the night.

Heavy showers were experienced in several parts of the City as well as on outskirts like Devanahalli.

Trees were uprooted near Surana College, BTM Layout, JP Nagar 5th Phase (16th Cross), Isro Layout and Koramangala 4th Block. However, there were no injuries reported from any of these places.

Residents also reported water-logging at Anepalya near Johnson Market. This led to a traffic jam and resulted in a hold-up of vehicles for nearly an hour.

The City recorded around 14 mm of rainfall with a maximum temperature of 33.7 degrees Celsius. HAL Airport received 25.2 mm and the Yelahanka area recorded around 14.4 mm of precipitation.

Chikmagalur district received 13 mm of rainfall and Gadag recorded 18 mm of rainfall.
Spells of rain and thundershowers are expected to occur in some area, with the maximum temperature hovering around 33 degrees Celsius for the next two days, the India Meteorological Department has said.

“The southwest monsoon has advanced into some more parts of the southwest Bay of Bengal, southeast Bay of Bengal, east-central Bay of Bengal and the entire Andaman Sea, which is the reason for the downpour.

Rain accompanied by thundershowers will occur at many places over south interior Karnataka and at a few places over coastal Karnataka and north interior Karnataka over the next two days,” said Met Department Director B Puttanna.

According to information provided by the department, southwest monsoon normally advances over Andaman Sea around May 20 with a standard deviation of about one week.
