Weatherman predicts more rain for city

Cloudy sky, strong wind and chill weather brought back memories of yesteryears to many Bengalureans. These are just a few factors which mark the North East Monsoon, India Meteorological Department (IMD) officials have said.

Some parts of the city experienced light rainfall while others received just a drizzle. However, the mercury level dropped. The maximum temperature on Monday was 26.7 degrees Celsius, which was 1.3 degrees below normal (28 degrees Celsius normal maximum). The minimum temperature was 19.3 degrees Celsius, which was 0.3 degrees above normal. The IMD
recorded trace rainfall over the city, HAL Airport and Kempegowda International Airport till 5.30 pm.

The IMD also forecast light to moderate rainfall in the city and other parts of interior Karnataka for the next three days. Sunder M Metri, IMD, Bengaluru, director- in-charge, said that the cloudy sky and rainfall is because of the formation of many systems.

According to IMD, there is a cyclonic circulation over south west Bay of Bengal and adjoining Sri Lanka extending up to 3.6 km above mean sea level. There is also a cyclonic circulation above mean sea level over Lakshwadeep area and neighbourhood.

These factors have led to cloud formation. Thus for the next two to three days, the wind will be strong and the city will get rainfall.
