Hyderabad: A cloudy sky, dipping mercury levels and an intermittent drizzle. That was Hyderabad on Wednesday.
The city, having woken up to cloudy weather conditions with no sign of the sun, had a steady drizzle joining in by noon to bring in the real feel of the monsoon. The drizzling remained intermittent in most parts of the city, though there were heavy showers in some parts.
The traffic, which has been lean for the last several days even after the lockdown was lifted, thinned further and there was hardly much movement of vehicles on most of the city roads. However, several thoroughfares where there was heavy traffic, water logging triggered by the intermittent rains left an impact, with the smooth flow of traffic being affected and traffic snarls witnessed at some spots. Several low-lying localities and roads were also inundated, with power supply being disrupted in quite a few areas.
Light rain for Thursday
While the India Meteorological Department had issued a warning of heavy rains for the city on Wednesday, its forecast for Thursday looks at a generally cloudy sky with light rain or thundershowers.
As for the rainfall across the GHMC limits, according to data from the Telangana State Development Planning Society, Balanagar in Kukatpally Circle had recorded a rainfall of 94.3mm by 5 pm, while Fateh Nagar in Moosapet Circle recorded 84mm. The Begumpet IMD office recorded 69mm.
