Heavy rains expected in South India
Bengaluru, Nov 12: Met department has predicted an upper air cyclonic circulation over south Andhra Pradesh and adjoining west-central Bay of Bengal, extending up to the lower troposphere.

This has brought along the possibility of showers during the next two days.

The weather had become dry after a heavy spell of rains for three days on October 25, 26 and 27, 2014. A slight winter chill had also crept in for a few days after cyclonic storm Nilofar weakened.

"We are expecting some change in the weather and isolated rainfall during the next 48 hours," a source at meteorological centre said.

A few isolated showers are likely from Tuesday, November 11. "These may last for two days till Thursday morning and there will be no large change after that," the source said.

"The weather is sultry because of the higher humidity. If the maximum temperature is slightly high, it doesn't affect much if the humidity is low," the source said.

However, the low pressure system has brought a change in the weather of central India.

After withdrawal of south-west monsoon from this part of India in October, the low-level winds become northerly. This favours the movement of cold air from northern parts of India into central parts.

But the weather conditions over Bay of Bengal will keep winters at bay for over a week.
