Hyderabad: The city recorded its warmest day this month at 34ºC, much higher than its normal of 28ºC in July. The weather bureau attributed the rise in day temperatures to the monsoon trough moving towards the Himalayan foothills, carrying the moisture along with it.
Light to moderate rain occurred at very few places in the state. The Met department said that these conditions were likely to prevail over the next three or four days.
The rain will be caused by a trough stretching from Odisha to south Tamil Nadu that covers coastal AP. The heavy rainfall warning over the state has been withdrawn.
According to the Met department, Hanamkonda was the hottest place in the state at 37.6ºC, followed by Nalgonda (37.4ºC), Ramagundam (37ºC), Khammam (36.6ºC) and Bhadrachalam (36ºC)....
