    There is a possibility of a revival in rainfall activity in the third week of August due to the formation of Low-Pressure Areas (LPAs). These LPAs can bring renewed precipitation and potentially lead to significant rainfall in several regions.

    According to Sravani, a scientist from the India Meteorological Department (IMD-H), there is no need to worry even if the monsoon experiences reduced rainfall. The substantial rainfall received in July has already benefited sowing operations and agriculture.

    Thunderstorm activity is expected in most parts of the state in the coming days, which will further aid agricultural activities and water resources.

    The copious rainfall received in July has eliminated any possibility of drought, and the presence of El Nino is unlikely to affect this year’s monsoon. The water availability for agricultural and other purposes is expected to be sufficient.

    Between July 17 and July 28, two Low-Pressure Areas formed over Telangana, leading to surplus rainfall across the state. This influx of rainfall has offset the previous rainfall deficit, resulting in a substantial excess.

    During June and July 2023, the state has received 56 percent excess rainfall compared to the expected amount. This bodes well for agricultural activities and water resources in the region.
