IMD forecasts more rain in the next 2-3 days in Bengaluru
The city on Friday afternoon experienced a sudden downpour with strong winds blowing at a speed of 53 kmph.

This, according to India Meteorological Department officials, is a feature of the south west monsoon. Till 5.30 pm, the city received 6 mm rainfall, while HAL airport recorded 21.6 mm and Kempegowda International Airport received 1.2 mm rainfall. Due to the strong wind and sudden downpour, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) control room received complaints of tree falls near Vidhana Soudha and in RT Nagar. BBMP workers were sent to these spots immediately to clear them to prevent traffic jams. Slow moving traffic was also reported in most parts of the city.

The cloudy sky and cool showers helped bring down the mercury.
