Cloudy weather spares B'lore early summer heat

Bangaloreans have been enjoying the pleasant weather since Tuesday, a much-needed respite from the scorching early summer heat. That is not it.

This phenomenon, coupled with slight rainfall, would continue for the next couple of days, say Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) officials. Some parts of Bangalore also experienced light rainfall during the early hours of Thursday.

According to B Puttanna, IMD director, Bangalore, “South interior Karnataka, including Bangalore, can expect isolated rainfall (measuring between 2.5 mm and 7.5 mm). This is because of the presence of an upper air cyclonic circulation over Lakshadweep area, at 900 metres above sea level. There is also a trough of low pressure in this area, which is why there is clouding and this will continue for another two days.

If this system persists, cloud cover will increase in south interior Karnataka and also coastal Karnataka, leading to rainfall.” He pointed out that earlier, there was a system over coastal Karnataka, adjoining central Arabian Sea and extending up to 0.9 km above sea level, which has now shifted to Lakshadweep area.

The clouds are not dense, but they are making the weather pleasant as they are carrying ice crystals in them and are covering the sun. Due to this, people are not feeling the burning summer heat. “This clouding is normal in this end of winter season. If the weather intensifies, it will bring rain to parts of coastal Karnataka and Ghat regions too,” Puttanna said.
