Heavy rain once again lashed several parts of the city on Friday afternoon. While it was a respite for citizens from the heat, it also rekindled fears of another possible inundation in the low-lying areas. 

Rain was reported from Nampally, Abids, Hyderguda, Khairatabad, Lakdikapul, Tank bund and Necklace Road.Moderate rain was reported from Secunderabad, Bowenpally, Begumpet, Chilkalguda and Trimulgherry. At many places, traffic snarls slowed down the vehicular movement. 

Officials from the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) attributed the showers to a low pressure area over west-central Bay of Bengal off the Andhra Pradesh and Odisha coast. Coupled with the low pressure zone, there is also a current

of humid winds blowing over the city, which has aided in the formation of rain bearing clouds over the city.

“The current conditions are favourable for the monsoon to advance into some parts of the Konkan coast, Rayalseema and coastal Andhra Pradesh and some parts of the north-eastern states. The city too might witness the onset in the next 48 hours,“ said Dr Y K Reddy, director (in-charge), the IMD, Hyderabad.

Authorities analysing the monsoon's path, said it is expected to cover many parts of Telangana, including Hyderabad by June 11.The Indian Meteorological Department has predicted that the rains will be in excess of 3 per cent as against the historical average of 96 per cent.
