Finally, Bengalureans can say goodbye to chilly weather that was prevailing for the last couple of days in the City. The Meteorological department has predicted a decline in the rainfall in the next few days.

Speaking with Deccan Herald, Director, Indian Meteorological Department, Geeta Agnihotri, said: “There was a largescale synoptic system over South West Bay of Bengal last week and it was moving westwards over southern parts. Due to this, the City was receiving rainfall. Now the system has moved westwards and is over the Arabian sea. It has moved away from the southern parts, and hence, a decrease in the rainfall.” Maximum temperature on Wednesday was 24.6 degree Celsius, and on Thursday, it was 22.3 degree Celsius, which indicates that the cold weather is subsiding steadily, according to the Met department officials.

However, there might be a possibility of light rains or drizzle in the next couple of days, they added.

The City received 2.9 mm of rainfall from Wednesday 8.30 am, till Thursday 8.30 am. The City has received 10.8 mm of rainfall on Thursday.

BBMP had received a complaint of an uprooted tree in Rajajinagar Industrial Town, which has been cleared.
