"A trough or low pressure has formed between Kokan region and central parts of Chhattisgarh passing through north Karnataka, Telangana and Vidarbha. These conditions will bring rain for the state," an IMD, Hyderabad, official said. The rains, however, were be limited to Adilabad, Asifabad, Nirmal, Mancherial, Jagtial , Nizamabad and Kamareddy over the next 24-48 hours up to Wednesday, the IMD had said.
Meanwhile, experts have noted that these thunderstorms were unusual for this time of the year.
"Usually March 1 to May 31 is called the pre-monsoon phase. In this phase, when temperatures go above 40 degrees, it is followed by thunderstorms. However, for central India, this usually starts from March second week to April first week when temperatures go up and rains accompany. This time around, in an unusual trend, the pre-monsoon showers have arrived early, in the first week of March itself owing to high temperatures," Mahesh Palwat of Skymet Weather said.
"Rain is possible once again for Telangana and, during that time, it will occur across the state and may continue until March 19," Palwat added.
