BANGALORE: Bangaloreans--who aren’t new to braving ordinary weather changes, have been seen sporting winterwear for the past two days.

A chill, precipitated by the easterly winds, has driven people to bring out and put on those woollen clothes.

The weatherman said that a trough of low depression off the Tamil Nadu coast has triggered the chill.

Adding to this is the moderate easterlies that bring in a lot of moisture from the Bay of Bengal.

Further, the weatherman added, a North East monsoon wind is blowing from the Bay of Bengal, through Andhra Pradesh coastal Tamil Nadu, and moving towards Southern Karnataka.

Because of Bangalore’s high altitude, it’s likely to experience drizzles. Rainfall may not exceed 10 mm.

The temperature will, however, not drop below 10 degrees Celsius. On Wednesday night, the temperature had touched 11 degrees Celsius.

The City recorded a maximum temperature of 23.6 degrees Celsius and a minimum of 16.8 degrees Celsius on Wednesday, as compared to 25.6 degrees Celsius maximum and a minimum of 16.8 degrees Celsius on Tuesday.

Farmers are advised not to harvest their crops till Friday.
