After dealing with extremely cold conditions, Hyderabad may experience unseasonal rains by the end of the month.
A fresh western disturbance, according to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), could cause rains in the city as early as next week. During this time, a hailstorm is also expected.
For nearly three days beginning January 26, a partly cloudy sky with haze will persist with moderate to heavy rains. Cold weather will continue to grip the city until the wet spell arrives, with the average minimum temperature falling below 20 degrees Celsius.
According to the Met Department, Hyderabad experienced a “normal” northeast monsoon season (October to December), with 148.5 mm of rain compared to the usual mark of 157.1 mm.
Winter rains are usually insignificant in the city. However, it received a record rainfall of 36.8 mm in 2020.
A similar weather pattern is expected to prevail in other districts as well. Heavy rains are expected to affect North Telangana districts such as Adilabad, Nizamabad, and Kumaram Bheem Asifabad, as well as crop damage is also expected.
Hyderabad experienced changing weather patterns in 2022
In Hyderabad, the year 2022 was marked by changing weather patterns. The summer was milder, while the monsoon arrived in a huge way and the temperature fluctuated between low and high levels during the winter.
Though the year began with the coldest minimum temperatures, the cold quickly dissipated, and February was a contrast, with heat searing the city between March and May.
The years 2016 and 2017 were the hottest, with temperatures reaching 43 degrees Celsius, and this summer proved to be more moderate, with the highest maximum temperature recorded being around 42 degrees Celsius.
Following light rains in June, the season began to shift in July, with the city receiving a whopping 125% excess rainfall. The highest rainfall of the month was recorded between July 6 and July 13. While August ended with a deficit in rainfall, September saw the highest rainfall in over a decade.
The city experienced an early taste of winter when temperatures began to fall in late October. The minimum temperature fell to 14.9 degrees Celsius on October 24, the lowest in 54 years. On October 26, the third-lowest temperature of 15.1 degrees Celsius was recorded.
