Hotter days forecast for City

Hotter days forecast for City

The summer heat is likely to grip the City harder in the days to come, with the weathermen predicting that the temperature is likely to rise further and touch the 37 degrees Celsius mark.

The mercury level that has already scaled to 36.4 degrees this summer may go up further, say officials in the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), Bangalore.

The relief that showers have brought in the last few days may only be temporary. The weather is expected to get more humid in the days to come. Even as parts of the city experienced considerable rainfall on Friday and Saturday, B Puttanna, Director-in-charge, IMD, Bangalore, who spoke to Deccan Herald, said that the rainfall was likely to come down in the next two days, thus leading to an increase in humidity and temperature.

“The upper air trough (North-South) from Central Maharashtra to Southern Tamil Nadu that passes across interior Karnataka and interior Tamil Nadu (which extends up to 0.9 km above the sea level) will become unimportant after two days. As a result, rainfall will come down,” he said.


However, parts of North Karnataka, the Malnad region, Bangalore and surrounding areas might see slight drizzles. Reports on the department website indicate that the humidity could cross the 65 per cent mark. “The rainfall is likely to increase in the second half of the season, in the month of May. There are chances of cyclonic storms in the Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea,” he said.
