Although Bengaluru has recorded excess rainfall from the beginning of March, soaring temperatures have been a concern for the city. Experts put this down to global warming as well as rapid urbanisation.
Professor G Bala from the Centre for Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bengaluru said: “Every year, the southern peninsula, including Karnataka, receives pre-monsoon showers in March, April and May. What we are witnessing now is these pre-monsoon showers. There is a large year-to-year variation in the quantum of these pre-monsoon showers. Scorching heat is also usual during this period but it has become intense in recent years likely because of global warming and urbanisation.”
