Pre-monsoon thundershowers lashed the city on Tuesday afternoon bringing much relief as the scorching day temperatures dropped by a few notches.

Though the afternoon was suffocating, weather turned pleasant after the thundershowers. The day time temperature hovered around 42.5 degrees Celsius dropped noticeably by evening.

Traffic jam

Though city witnessed rains only in some parts, the sudden downpour led to water logging on many roads leading to obstructions of vehicular traffic movement.

M. Satya Kumar, Director, Met Department said the thundershowers were limited to only some parts of the city and the temperature was likely to remain in the same range for the next two-three days. “Though these are pre-monsoon showers, the temperature is unlikely to come down due to the continuing heat wave conditions in parts of Telangana,” he informed.

Close monitoring

Mr. Satyakumar said the further advance of monsoon would depend upon the intensity and direction of movement of cyclone system currently in the Arabian Sea. “We are closely watching this system and would be able to predict onset of monsoon in coming days,” he said.
