After a bountiful monsoon, Karnataka is witnessing a waning of the post monsoon rains. The north east monsoon is said to have weakened, resulting in a break for rains.

C.S. Patil from India Meteorological Department (IMD), Bengaluru, said the north east monsoon was ‘weak’ at present. “Last week, there were two or three cyclones that formed over the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. This cooled the oceans. The ocean temperatures should be high to cause rains. This takes time,” he said. However, Mr. Patil said light rains are approaching in the next three or four days over south interior Karnataka.

The north east monsoon is particularly important for parts of Karnataka, like drought-hit Kolar and Bengaluru, and States like Tamil Nadu. “In fact, 70-80% of the rainfall that Tamil Nadu gets is from the north east monsoon,” he explained.
