The city on Tuesday took this year’s southwest monsoon to top position in Hyderabad’s rainfall chart of the last 15 years. According to the data with Telangana State Development Planning Society (TSDPS), between June 1 and October 15, Hyderabad recorded a ‘large excess rainfall’ of 1,126 mm against a normal rainfall of 638.2 mm with a deviation of 77 per cent from normal.

Till now, the year 2017 had highest rainfall record of 1,018 mm for entire monsoon in the last 15 years. The incessant rainfall recorded in Hyderabad on October 13 and 14 was 141.9 mm.

“Since the monsoon was active throughout the season, Hyderabad received large excess rainfall this year. Moreover, the delay in withdrawal of monsoon, followed by a depression over the State on October 13, has resulted in record rainfall,” said B Venu Madhav, Assistant Executive Officer, TSDPS.

Last year, Hyderabad recorded a rainfall of 776.2 mm, which is 350 mm less from this year. In 2018, it witnessed deficit rainfall of 401.7 mm against a normal rainfall of 638.2 which happens to be the lowest rainfall recorded in monsoon in the last 15 years.

Apart from Hyderabad, Rangareddy and Medchal-Malkajgiri too received record rainfall with both districts receiving 1,039.9 mm and 1,083.4 mm respectively. Since 2006, Rangareddy has never crossed a rainfall of 1,000 mm mark and the highest was reported in 2005 when it received 775.7 mm.
