Bengaluru to get rain for five days

Mercury plunged as a result of the rain, with the city recording the maximum of 26 degrees Celsius till 5.30 pm.

The rainfall on Wednesday morning surprised many Bengalureans and disturbed their daily routine.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) says that would not be all. The weather bureau has predicted rainfall over the city and across the state for the next five days.

IMD-Bengaluru director-in-charge C P Patil said rainfall would continue at varying intensity, though it is unlikely that the rainfall would be heavy as it was on August 15 last year.

At 1.30 pm on Wednesday, the city had recorded 2.1 mm; at 5.30 pm it received 7.6 mm. While HAL airport received 3.2 mm, the Kempegowda International Airport reported 16.2 mm rain.

Mercury plunges

Mercury plunged as a result of the rain, with the city recording the maximum of 26 degrees Celsius till 5.30 pm.

IMD said the rainfall is due to a cyclonic circulation at 7.6 km above the mean sea level, lying south-westwards, tilting towards north interior Karnataka. It predicted that a low-pressure area will likely form over the northwest Bay of Bengal and the neighbourhood around August 13.

From June 1 to August 8, the city has received 214 mm rain. While HAL recorded 180 mm, KIA reported 133 mm downpour.

Until 8.30 pm on Tuesday, the city received 3.6 mm rainfall, while HAL and the international airport had each received 1.2 mm rainfall. Upto 8.30 pm on Wednesday, the city recorded 8.7 mm rain. The downpour in HAL was 6 mm, while the Kempegowda International Airport registered 16.2 mm.
