Intense thunderstorms lash Coastal AP, Telangana, Tamil Nadu

Extreme thunderstorms accompanied with gusty winds/squally weather conditions/hailstorm and rainfall exceeding 5 cm lashed Coastal Odisha, North Coastal Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and North Tamil Nadu on Saturday/Sunday as thunderheads paraded along the coast n a South-South-West way.

Coastal Andhra Pradesh record the heaviest rainfall (in cm) in Anakapalle-eleven Prathipadu-10 Tada-9 Visakhapatnam and Srungavarapukota-8 every single Visakhapatnam Airport, Vepada, and Gantyada-7 Bhimadole, Chodavaram, and Vizianagaram-six every single Sullurpeta, Gudivada, Yelamanchili-5 every single, an India Meteorological Department (IMD) update mentioned. Chettikulam-six and Taramani- 5 (Tamil Nadu) and Burgampadu-six Aswapuram, Mulakalapalle, Palawancha, and Aswaraopeta- 5 every single (Telangana) as well shared the honours.

Wind discontinuity/trough

The spine of the pre-monsoon action is a wind discontinuity (in which opposing winds from the seas converge) over Peninsular India all-around which major weather conditions breeds. The result will be reasonably popular rain or thundershowers along with isolated major rainfall probable over Kerala in the course of the following four-5 days. Rains will go on over Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Puducherry for the subsequent four days. Thunderstorms, hailstorms, lightning, gusty winds and major rainfall are also probable.

Late on Sunday afternoon, rain-bearing clouds have been spotted over Pudukkottai, Gandarvakottai, Manapparai, Nachelura, Musiri, significant over Dindigul, Chinnalapatti, Vakkampatti, Athoor and Kanniyadi in Tamil Nadu, and throughout the Palakkad-Nilambur belt in adjoining Kerala. Thunderstorms have been also active over Kollam and adjoining Thiruvananthapuram districts in South Kerala.

Look at for a small-stress region

The IMD managed its check out for the very first pre-monsoon small-stress region over the South Andaman Sea all-around April thirty and its intensification in the course of the subsequent two days. It could to begin with go north-northwest and later on north-north-east along and off the Andaman & Nicobar Islands until eventually May 3.

Squally winds, pace reaching forty-50 km/hr gusting to sixty km/hr (pretty much touching the intensity of depression) could prevail over the North Sumatra coast, South Andaman Sea, the Nicobar Islands and the adjoining South-East Bay on April thirty and May one, and over North Andaman Sea, the Andaman Islands and adjoining South-East and East-Central Bay May 2 and 3.

Thunderstorms in North, East

In the meantime, the formation of a pre-monsoon trough from East to West and involved convergence of winds and moisture from the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal along the plains in the North will maintain the reasonably popular to popular rainfall over East and North-East India in the course of following two days with peak action over Odisha, Jharkhand, and plains of West Bengal on Sunday. Isolated major rainfall, thunderstorms/thunder squalls are probable over East and North-East India.

Hailstorms could roam over Odisha, Jharkhand and Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura in the course of this period. Scattered to reasonably popular rain/thundershowers is probable over Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and the adjoining plains (predominantly Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh) in the course of the following two days. Isolated hailstorms and gusty winds are also probable over the location.
