1200 7

On Friday, May 13, Bengaluru set a new record for the lowest maximum temperature in the month of May, with a maximum temperature of 23oC at 8.30 a.m. Bengaluru, according to weather bloggers, was cooler than numerous Indian hill stations, including Mahabaleshwar and Shimla. Bengaluru reported a maximum temperature of 24.3oC on Thursday, and a maximum temperature of 23oC at the Bengaluru city observatory on Friday morning. According to IMD, this is a dramatic shift of roughly 8-10 degrees from the average temperature in May.

Under the influence of cyclone Asani, the city saw its coldest day in May since 2000. On Wednesday, Cyclone Asani is expected to approach the shores of Andhra Pradesh and Odisha, weakening into a cyclonic storm during the following 24 hours, as per the India Meteorological Department (IMD).

Bengaluru city recorded 23.0 Degree Celsius, Bengaluru airport area 26.4 Degree Celsius, and Bengaluru HAL airport area 23.8 Degree Celsius, according to the Meteorological Centre in Bengaluru, as of 8.30 a.m. on Friday. The rains brought on by hurricane Asani are to blame for the dramatic drop in temperature.

The chilly weather is expected to last for the next two days, with the IMD forecasting a gloomy sky over Bengaluru. Rain is also expected with some of it being heavy at times. The highest and minimum temperatures will almost certainly be about 24 and 20 degrees Celsius, respectively. The weather could also be quite windy, with IMD forecasting high and gusty surface winds.

Most regions in coastal and south interior Karnataka, as well as a few places in north interior Karnataka, recorded rain on Thursday.

Rain or thundershowers are quite likely to occur throughout most of southern Karnataka over the next 48 hours, as well as several spots along the coast. Rainfall and thundershowers are also expected in a few locations across northern Karnataka.
