Bengaluru: At 37.4 degrees Celsius, Bengaluru was sizzling on Thursday. And praying for a shower. Stand by for the vertical cloud formation, the dark one that causes thunderstorms, says the Met. Weather scientists put down the rising mercury to two primary causes -- the El Nino effect and the formation of 'Urban Heat Islands' in Bengaluru due to indiscriminate building activity.

"A third cause is the delay in thunderstorms. We will see a dip in temperature only after the vertical cloud formation," a Met official said. But don't believe the wild readings -- upwards of 40 degrees Celsius -- on your smartphone weather app, says the Met. Instead, download the Met's own Android app 'Mausam Vani' for an accurate reading.
