Live with rain for three more days

The temperatures are likely to dip further and the City will experience rainfall for the next three days, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) officials have forecast.

The City has been experiencing cloud cover and rainfall for the last two days and this is likely to continue for the next three days because a third system is now prevailing, said S M Metri, director incharge of IMD-Bengaluru. For the last two days, there were two systems - upper air cyclonic circulation over Bay of Bengal in south west side towards coastal Andhra Pradesh and a trough of low pressure had developed over the Arabian Sea. These two had completely covered the Karnataka skies due to which there was cloudy weather and light rainfall.

Third system

Now, these two systems have become well marked and a third system has formed over Lakshadweep area. There is an upper air cyclonic circulation in Lakshadweep and neighbourhood areas. Due to this, cloudy sky and rainfall will continue for another two to three days, Metri said.

He said formation of systems was not a regular feature, but not rare either. But formation of three systems is unusual. This will, however, have no impact on the onset of summer and pre-monsoon showers. The maximum and minimum temperatures will change because of these systems.

1.2 mm rainfall

The City, on Wednesday, received 1.2 mm rainfall up to 5.30 pm, the maximum and minimum temperatures were 25.6 and 19.9 degree Celsius, respectively. HAL airport received 4 mm rainfall with a maximum and minimum temperature of 25.8 and 19.6 degree Celsius. The Kempegowda International Airport recorded a maximum and minimum of 24 and 19 degree Celsius, with 2.3 mm rainfall.

Bengaluru City, HAL and international airports did not receive any rainfall on Monday. On Tuesday, the City recorded 0.4 mm and international airport recorded 8 mm.
