Light to moderate rainfall expected in the next 72 hours: IMD

Hyderabad: Due to the ongoing severe depression in the Bay of Bengal, light to moderate to heavy rains are expected in Hyderabad and several areas in Telangana for the next two-three days, the Indian Meteorological Department said. The prediction is because of the low-pressure trough that became severe in the eastern central Bay of Bengal and the adjoining northern Andaman Sea.

The low-pressure trough is likely to intensify and turn into a severe cyclone in the next 24 hours and cross the coast of North Andhra Pradesh on October 12, the IMD said in a statement.

The weather report states that there will be scattered thundershowers and a chance of heavy to very heavy rains occurring in isolated places of Telangana.
