According to the TS Development and Planning Society, heavy rainfall is categorized as 64.5-124.4 mm, while very heavy rainfall falls between 124.5 mm and 244.5 mm.

As the weather turned damp and cooler, the minimum temperature dipped to 20ºC in Hayathnagar, while the city as a whole recorded temperatures around 21°C on Tuesday.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) reported the formation of a low-pressure area influenced by cyclonic circulations over the northwest Bay of Bengal and adjacent west-central Bay of Bengal, off the south Odisha-north Andhra Pradesh coast. This cyclonic circulation is expected to move westwards across Odisha and south Chattisgarh within the next 24 hours, potentially reducing the intensity of rainfall in Telangana, according to IMD officials.
