Showers in City, lower summer heat

Showers in City, lower summer heat
Bangalore, dhns:
Commuters ducked for cover on Tuesday evening, as rains lashed the City much to the relief of Bangaloreans, struggling to cope up with the soaring summer heat.

However, many low lying areas were inundated due to flooding of rain water.
The downpour, immediately lowered temperatures. Rainfall is expected over the next three days which is likely to increase in intensity and spatial distribution, according to Director of the Meteorological Department, Muthichami.
The City recorded 2.2 millimetres of rainfall with a maximum temperature of 33.4 degrees centigrade on Tuesday, while 14 mm of rainfall was recorded on Monday morning. “There is a westerly flow upto 1.5 km from the sea level” explained Muthuchami. This is a result of cyclonic circulation over South West Bay which means rain will continue over the next two to three days, he added.
The Director further said that the temperatures have dropped due to showers.
Tree fall
However the rain will dissipate after three days, he added. Complaints of tree falls, one each at Jayanagar II and IV Blocks were received at the BBMP control room. No person was injured.
