Hyderabad: Though it was a sunny Saturday for most part of the day in the city, a forecast by India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the city was likely to witness light to moderate rains on Sunday and Monday.
Dr K Nagaratna, Director of IMD Hyderabad, said the depression over northeastern and adjoining east central Bay of Bengal had moved westwards with a speed of 12 kilometre per hour.
“It is likely to cross northern Andhra Pradesh and southern Odisha coast by Sunday evening. This will result in heavy to very heavy rains in the northern and eastern districts of Telangana — including Adilabad, Kumram Bheem Asifabad, Mancherial, Peddapalli, Jayashankar Bhupalpally, Khammam, Mahabubabad, Warangal (Rural), Warangal (Urban), Siddipet, Yadadri Bhongir, Sangareddy, Medak and Kamareddy. We have also issued an orange warning for these places,” she said.
“Hyderabad, however, is likely to receive only light to moderate rainfall in the next 48 hours. Thunderstorms accompanied with lightning with wind speed 30-40 kmph are very likely to occur throughout the State. We have issued a four-day yellow alert for Telangana as well,” she added.
