The streak of humid weather followed by cloudburst continued in the State capital for the second day, with several localities witnessing heavy rain accompanied by thunder on Tuesday too.

Despite the torrential rain witnessed by the city on Monday, sunny and sultry weather prevailed till post noon on Tuesday, which changed at around 2.30 p.m. Clouds began to gather over major portion of the city, and it soon began to pour.

Hastinapuram area of Hayatnagar mandal recorded 5.4 centimetres, followed by Alkapuri at 4.6 centimetres, Nagole at 4.3 centimetres, Bandlaguda and Begum Bazar at 4 centimetres. Several colonies of Charminar, Himayatnagar, Marredpally, Saroornagar, Kukatpally, Malkajgiri, Khairatabad and other areas experienced considerable rain and inundation.

Roads were water logged even in areas where the rain was only moderate. Inundation was reported from areas such as LB Nagar, Saroornagar, Khairatabad, Nampally, Mallepally, Serilingampally, and others.

On Monday too, the city had received heavy rains, recording a maximum of almost 10 centimetres in Nampally. Department of Meteorology predicted likelihood of generally cloudy sky, and moderate to heavy rain/thundershowers, at times with intense spells in the city for the coming two days.
