The IMD informed that there is a cyclonic circulation of winds moving across North Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh. “Cyclonic circulation winds are active around Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh, due to which the coastal districts of Andhra Pradesh will have strong winds, light to moderate rains and thunderstorms. The same weather will continue for the next two days and the day temperatures will be around 35-37 degree Celsius,” B Naga Ratna, an official from IMD Hyderabad, was quoted as saying by New Indian Express.
