Udupi Today Media Network


Bangalore, 16 March 2012: After the hot spell over the past few weeks, the city witnessed unexpected showers on Thursday evening bringing some relief to Bangaloreans. While areas such as Vijayanagar, Chamarajpet, Basavangudi, C.V. Raman Nagar, Shivajianagar and surrounding areas witnessed rain, areas in Yelahanka region witnessed light drizzle.


Director of Indian Meteorology Department, Bangalore, B. Puttanna said traces of rainfall were recorded in Bangalore Urban and Rural areas because of the existing weak weather systems. The maximum temperature is predicted to increase by at least two degrees Celsius in the next 24 hours and it is likely to remain so for three to four days. The maximum temperature in the city on Thursday was recorded at 34 degrees Celsius, he said.



Mr. Puttanna attributed the rain to upper air trough of low pressure at the mean sea level running from Comorin to North Interior Karnataka across interior Tamil Nadu. There is an upper air cyclonic circulation over Comorin areas extending up to 0.9 km above sea level, he said.


Under this influence, there was a possibility of light rain in Kodagu, Mandya, Chikmagalur, Bangalore Urban and Bangalore Rural districts, he added.

 The rain last night was good feeling, I could see some people walk and some just get wet. In the morning it is a fresh atmosphere. I really like Bengaluru.
