Hyderabad: The coming 24 hours, starting from Sunday, will see vigorous monsoon conditions prevailing over Telangana state and Andhra Pradesh. Very heavy rainfall has been forecast for all districts of TS and coastal Andhra Pradesh while Rayalaseema has been excluded from the severe weather warning.

The change in the weather condition is a result of the low-pressure area that is persisting over the Bay of Bengal. The cyclonic circulation is adding moisture, resulting in cloud formation and rainfall. This system is likely to become more marked during the next 24 hours.

Telangana state is currently rain surplus by 31 per cent and Andhra Pradesh by 13 per cent, according to skymet-weather. During the last 24 hours, many parts of the two states received moderate to heavy rainfall.

Among the districts in TS, Adilabad, Kumaram, Suryapet, Peddapalle, Mancherial and Khammam have received excess rainfall. Medak, Vikarabad, Sangareddy, Rajanna Sircilla and Malkajgiri are in the deficit zone.

In Andhra Pradesh, a few spells of rain and thundershowers with strong gusty winds, lashed East Godavari, Guntur, Krishna, Kurnool, Prakasam and West Godavari.
