According to the Telangana State Development Planning Society, the State’s average rainfall from Friday to Saturday was 8.6 mm against a normal of 3.7 mm, meaning a deviation of 132 per cent.
This was when Hyderabad had so far recorded deficient rainfall.
More than 10 days after the Southwest monsoon advanced into the State, Hyderabad is still waiting for the real feel of the monsoon as it has only been seeing sporadic showers, none of them too heavy.
Saturday, too, was no different, with a few light showers reported in parts of the city. Most other districts, meanwhile, have been enjoying moderate to heavy rainfall.
