IMD issued heavy rainfall alert in Karnataka for next 2 month. A surface-to-surface cyclone is blowing in the Bay of Bengal and its intensity has increased. So this year there has been record rainfall.
221 mm of rain was expected in September, but till date 271 mm has rained. More rainfall is expected in the coming days. The India Meteorological Department expects 98 cm of rainfall from January to December 31 every year. But this year from June to September it has rained more than 100 cm. Weather department expert A Prasad has informed that there will be heavy rainfall in October, November and December in the coming months.
The main reason for the heavy rainfall in Karnataka this year is the change in climate and the shear zone. This type of rain occurs when the shear zone is high above sea level. Shear zone is where high winds blow from 11 degree latitude above sea level to the east direction. Meanwhile, at low latitudes, there is a westerly wind blowing at a speed of 9 or 8 in the westerly zone.
