HYDERABAD: Pre-monsoon showers lashed through the twin cities on Tuesday bringing in the much-needed relief from the sweltering weather. Officials from the Met department said the rain was an indication of the ensuing monsoon. “These showers will continue till the onset of monsoon.
While the day time temperatures will continue to remain high, evenings will be cooler because of the pre-monsoon showers,” said R V Subba Rao, assistant meteorologist, Met department. On Tuesday, the maximum temperature was recorded as 42.3 degrees.
Officials said the rain was due to the trough from Chhattisgarh to south Tamil Nadu across Telangana and south coastal AP. The officials added that the rains are isolated. Following the showers, the GHMC’s emergency wing got complaints of water logging from Jubilee Hills, Lakdikapul, Chikkadpally, Secretariat, Osmangunj, Jambagh and Greenlands.
