Windy, cloudy, overcast skies and scattered rains. That, in a nutshell, is what the weather will be like in the city over the next few days. With minimum temperatures hovering around 20 degree Celsius, Bangaloreans are already pulling out their woollens from their cupboards.
According to officials from the Meteorological Department, the overcast skies and strong surface winds have caused the maximum daytime temperature to dip by two degrees below normal. The maximum temperature, on Monday, was around 27 degree Celsius.
B. Puttanna, director of the met centre here, told The Hindu that the city received 127 mm rain so far. This is above the average of 87 mm that the city usually receives in June.
He said the south-western monsoon took just one week to cover the entire State, compared to the usual 10-15 days.
Mr. Puttanna said three coastal districts and four in the Malnad region had been receiving copious rains. This year, the rains were 35 per cent above normal in the State, he added.
