Due to “mild to moderate rainfall,” certain areas of Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana will continue to be on yellow alert on Tuesday and Wednesday. Meanwhile, Telangana’s northwest is predicted to experience severe rains. Due to the anticipated high rainfall, Odisha will continue to be on “orange” alert during this time period, according to IMDB.

On a closing note, the IMD expressed that this year’s rainfall has been helpful to farmers as there was less dependency on tube wells in most parts of the state. The farmers are expecting a good yield in paddy and other crops this year, the department said.
