All of this in the last 24 hours. The South West Monsoon is normal over the two states. It is advancing and will cover North India, Central India and North East India soon," he added.
"Today and tomorrow, rains will occur in Telangana, with one or two place receiving heavy rains.

It won't be sultry and we can enjoy the weather. I generally hang out with my friends in this season for relaxation. I will not carry any umbrella with me because I enjoy getting drenched in the rain."
Lasya, another student, told ANI, "I actually don't like rains and the rainy season. The other seasons are better. In the rainy season, water gets stagnant and there will be traffic jams on the road. Even water logging will be seen on the roads and it will stink because of the wetness. I will carry a rain coat with me when I go out to avoid falling sick." (ANI)
