Hyderabad: After a series of thunderstorms, the State is gearing up for the monsoon and according to weather experts, central and south Telangana might experience 40 per cent to 50 per cent excess rain fall this year.
According to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) – Hyderabad, the southwest monsoon has further advanced into some more parts of Maldives-Comorin area. However, they are expecting a slight delay in the monsoon this year.
“India just saw two major cyclones towards the end of season – Cyclonic Storm Yaas in Bay of Bengal and Cyclone Tauktae in Arabian Sea. As both the cyclones were very powerful, they have disrupted the monsoon pattern this year. As of now we are expecting the monsoon to hit the State around June 6, however we will re-examine the situation on May 31, before releasing an official statement,” said Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) officials.
Meanwhile, the temperature in the city continued to soar both during the day and night. The maximum temperature in the city, which had dropped by at least 5 degree Celsius last week, is expected to touch 40 degree Celsius this week. The pre-monsoon activities can however cause light to moderate evening rains in Hyderabad for the coming days.
