Also read: Heavy rains likely over Telangana, Andhra till Thursday, says IMD

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a warning of extremely heavy rainfall in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh until Thursday. This weather pattern is due to a well-marked low-pressure area over west central and adjacent northwest Bay of Bengal, situated off the north Andhra Pradesh-south Odisha coasts. The IMD predicts that this low-pressure area is likely to intensify into a depression within the next 24 hours.

As the depression moves slowly north-westwards along the north Andhra Pradesh-south Odisha coasts, and the western end of the monsoon trough shifts further northwards over the next two days, the regions of Rayalaseema, Kerala, and Mahe of Puducherry are expected to experience very heavy rainfall. Karnataka is also likely to witness heavy rainfall until Friday.
