Expect more thundershowers in next 48 hours

India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast thundershowers for the next two days over parts of the south interior and coastal Karnataka.

On Monday, the city till 5.30 pm received 5.8 mm rain with a maximum and minimum temperature of 33.1 and 23.1 degrees Celsius respectively.

HAL airport received 6.3 mm rain and recorded a maximum and minimum temperature of 33 and 21 degrees Celsius respectively.

Kempegowda International Airport did not receive any rain till 5.30 pm. However, the maximum and minimum temperatures were 32.9 and 21.4 degrees Celsius.

Geeta Agnihotri, IMD, Bengaluru, director-in-charge said the city and other parts of the state received the rain because of an increase in surface temperatures in the region and the formation of various systems.

There is a cyclonic circulation extending up to 1.5 km above mean sea level over north Chhattisgarh and neighbourhood. There is a trough extending up to 1.5 km above mean sea level from cyclonic circulation over north Chhattisgarh and neighbourhood extending up to interior Karnataka across Vidarbha, Marathwada and north interior Karnataka. There is also a cyclonic circulation over Lakshwadeep area and neighbourhood extending up to 1.5 km above mean sea level.

Geeta said that since these are pre-monsoon showers, the temperature will rise during the day and will drop during evening hours after every downpour.

However, there will be high humidity in the atmosphere. She said this is the pattern during pre-monsoon showers.

Delhi IMD officials added that it was a normal trend for temperatures to rise from mid-February. However, this time since the pre-monsoon showers are on time, the maximum summer temperature will not soar high as it was forecast earlier.
