 The weather in the City is likely to be cloudy with moderate rainfall expected in the next couple of days.

Humid conditions which persisted in the City for the last two days may pave way for windy and rainy days soon. Bangalore recorded a maximum temperature of 28 degree Celsius.

“The change is due to the upper air cyclonic circulation over the southern coast adjoining Sri Lanka and Rameshwaram areas, coupled with the weak monsoon,” officials in the Meteorological department said.

The City may receive rains with the monsoon gathering stre­ngth. “Although the rainfall in the month of August is 16 percent less than normal, copious rain in the preceding months will ensure normalcy,” said B Puttanna, the Director of Meteorological Department. The City received 94.3 mm rainfall against the normal of 141.6 mm in August.

Coastal Karnataka and South Karnataka have received excess rainfall of 42 per cent and 24 per cent respectively. Southern parts of the State are expected to receive heavy rainfall in the coming days, according the Meteorological department. 

Bagalkot, Yadgir, Kolar and Tumkur have suffered deficit rainfall whereas other parts including Mysore, Davangere, Chitradurga and Shimoga have received above average rainfall.
