Southwest monsoon reaches Andhra Pradesh

Met department says monsoon will reach TS in a few days
Hyderabad: The Southwest monsoon has finally entered Andhra Pradesh. The Indian Meteorological Department on Wednesday reported that the monsoon had reached Anantapur in the Rayalaseema region of AP.
It will take a few more days for the monsoon to advance and cover more of Andhra Pradesh and it will be at least 2-3 days more before it reaches Telangana. As per local meteorologists, a low depression needs to form over the northern Bay of Bengal, in addition to the existing trough over the east coast, for rains to occur in Rayalaseema.
Once the rains start and if these conditions continue, then the monsoon will move further north towards rest of AP and then Telangana. As per Wednesday’s IMD report, Rayalaseema received only isolated rains in Anantapur, Chittoor and Kadapa districts. Moreover, convective clouds were not seen over Rayalaseema or Coastal AP, indicating that there might not be much rains in the region, at least in the next 24 hours.
Dry weather prevailed in Telangana and temperatures were 2-5ºC above normal. The highest maximum temperature of 39ºC was recorded at Adilabad, whereas it was 37ºC across many places in AP.
Monsoon to cover entire AP in 5 days
With the weakening of the upper air circulation over Coastal AP and adjoining West Central Bay of Bengal, the temperature rose on Wednesday. Maximum temperature recorded at Vizag airport was 36.4°C and Waltair recorded 34°C. The weathermen said that the Southwest monsoon is likely to cover the entire state in five days.
